  1. I love Updike’s work. I don’t think he gets enough credit as a poet, especially since he became kind of a “New Yorker” pet in the last thirty years. But I love some of his stuff.

  3. I just starting getting into his work and am very upset. I do like his style of writing and am growing anxious in that all of our truly poetic writers are leaving us. Perhaps it is up to us to take up the pen and harness?
