About John Updike’s Poetry

“Is it conceivable that such a phenomenon also has produced a body of distinguished verse? It is conceivable, and such is in fact the case. [Collected Poems includes] seventy poems hitherto uncollected, written over the last eight or so years and showing Updike at his deepest and best.”
—William H. Pritchard, Boston Globe

“It is difficult to approach John Updike’s Collected Poems as the work of a poet—indeed, one of the best poets writing today. Updike enjoys such pre-eminence as a novelist that his poetry could be mistaken as a hobby or a foible . . . It is a poetry of civility—in its epigrammatical lucidity; in the matters it treats of . . . and in its tone of vulgar bonhomie and good appetite.”
—Thomas M. Disch, Poetry
