Famous quotes containing the words karl shapiro, shapiro and/or karl:

    Give me the free and poor inheritance
    Of our own kind, not furniture
    Of education, or the prophet’s pose,
    The general cause of words, the hero’s stance,
    The ambitions incommensurable with flesh,
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Sentio ergo sum: he feels his way
    And words themselves stand up for him like Braille
    And punch and perforate his parchment ear.
    —Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    a big picture of K. Marx with an axe,
    “Where I cut off one it will never grow again.”
    O Karl would it were true
    I’d put my saw to work for you
    & the wicked social tree would fall right down.
    Gary Snyder (b. 1930)
