Exceptional poetry

by on Jun 21, 2009

I'm sure my voice is not needed to confirm Richard Wilbur's exceptional position in today's American poetry. It is a pleasure to read work that has so much art and such gifted professionalism, enriched by a thorough understanding and love of English. Each of these poems has provided me pleasure while it taught me about the nunances of form and its relationship to content. Reading him is for a poet what visiting great museums is for an artist.
