A technically flawless paradigm of dignified, mostly stanzaic, mostly rhyming verse. -- Stephen Burt -- Poetry Review (London)
From the Inside Flap
It is a consolation to read through sixty years of Richard Wilburs poetry. He should be read in the company of ... Robert Frost and Wallace Stevens. Harold BloomSee all Product Description

Whereas those forms can often turn into a straightjacket, with all the awkwardness that can follow, Wilbur's poems flow naturally and frequently pack quite an emotional punch.
Comparisons with Wallace Stevens are understandable, but Wilbur has a distinctive voice all of his own.
This is a huge and beautifully presented tome. It may seem like too much, but it isn't. Inside are many, varied rewards and it deserves a place on any poetry lover's shelf.
