Selected Poems, 1969-1981.

Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh, 1982. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine, bright dust jacket. Richard Shelton is a fine expressive poet who adeptly squeezes the metaphysical and philosophical out of the most everyday events and the natural world. In this collection, he has chosen the finest of his published poems as well as a selection of new poems. Shelton displays a pictorial gift that is truly remarkable: flowing through line after line, seemingly inexhaustible streams of images build an intelligible surrealistic vision, evoking emotional states with great subtlety.
