Can you help me with English please?

I had writing my first college essay that the experience helped shape this book.

What does "shape" mean? Shape is a noun in this case?

Thank you!

    As mentioned, shape is used here as a verb.

    The meaning in this case would be, to have a great influence on.

    Shape here means inform/influence generally the outlook of the book. Shape ( = to shape) functions as a verbal noun object.

    it is a blind or naked infinitive as used. to shape, without the "to".

    No, "shape" is a verb in this case.
