Night of the Republic - Alan Shapiro - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Night of the Republic:

Poetry in the city.

My favorite Alan Shapiro quote from the book:

"The bad news was that the sun was mortal too."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

How long do you want to live?

Are you afraid of the dark?

My review of the Night of the Republic:

Cityscapes and public places.

Full of rich imagery.

Everyday places with a new perspective.
