it was ok

Aside from the poignant ruminations on his own mortality, the subjects that Updike has chosen for his poems are rather banal. Tools? TV? Colonscopy? His left hand? One of the knocks on Updike has always been that he is more technician than artist and this final collection of poems will only buttress that particular criticism. There is a final collection of his non-fiction prose (Higher Gossip) that I am looking forward to.
