Open Shutters also calls to mind the lens of a camera in the villanelle School Pictures or in the stirring sequence In the Guesthouse, which, inspired by photographs of a family across three generations, offers at once a social history of America and a love story.
Darkness and light interact throughout the book in poems about September 11: about a dog named Shadow: about a blind centenarian who still pretends to read the paper: about a woman shaken by the death of her therapist. A section of light verse highlights the wit and grace that have long distinguished Salter s most serious work.
Fittingly, the volume fools the eye once more by closing with An Open Book, in which a Muslim family praying at a funeral seek consolation in the pages formed by their upturned palms.
Open Shutters is the achievement of a remarkable poet, whose concerns and stylistic range continue to grow, encompassing ever larger themes, becoming ever more open.
