Since his precocious first book, published when he was eighteen, award-winning David Shapiro's four previous volumes of poetry have been hailed by Kenneth Rexroth, Philip Lopate, and John Ashbery.

A Burning Interior offers a restless poetry dense with stories but without mere confession or whimsical surface. It is a collection both universal and, at the same time, powerfully Jewish.

Shapiro's assured voice shows both range and virtuosity-included in this masterful collection are poems for Picasso, translations of Baudelaire and Rilke, amusing found art poetry, moving elegies, rhymed translations, and dazzling prose poems.
