七绝以悼厄普代克/eulogical poem for the late John Updike
A "once-in-a-generation phenomenon" spearheading a whole new era of American literature, he wrote marvelous small-town characters that vied for everlasting relevance;
While re-reading his works, one can't help but think back to the days when a rather active Updike in his inimitable way wielded his mighty pen and created a seemingly endless chain of smart fictions,
and alas, find himself awed by the words and stories that are so brilliantly "Updikean".
