Alan Shapiro was the second Phoenix Poet (after David Ferry) in Fall 1983, so it is with great anticipation that we welcome him back to the fold after twelve years with his newest book Reel to Reel, just in time for the 30th anniversary of the series.The volume bears all the hallmarks of the beautifully composed poetry that we’ve come to expect from Shapiro: the poems move from the intimacies of domestic love and attachment, and proceed outward to include contemporary social and political realities, including the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq via Homer’s Iliad. But Shapiro has also evolved as a writer, taking a quantum leap of faith, as it were, to explore new modes of expression and alternate ways to propel his verse syntactically. Like his earlier books of poetry (most of them published by this Press), Shapiro’s abiding subjects remain: Reel to Reel is very much a book about fundamental human truths, but it also yearns for truth in a larger universe we barely comprehend, from the natural world’s infinitely small realities to the infinitely large expanse of the cosmos. This is, far and away, his most ambitious book.
