A beautiful summer day spent with Richard Wilbur,
as he reads from his new collection
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, November 12, 2010)
Listen to "Galveston, 1961" - "Young Orchard,"
and hear Wilbur talk about everything from gardening
to teaching, to perfecting his poems, and much more.
In Anterooms, his first collection in nearly ten years, this literary legend,
proves to be at the height of his poetic powers.
Whether he's musing on a "yellow-striped green/Caterpillar" or playfully considering
that "Inside homeowner is the word meow," this collection is sure to delight everyone
from longtime devotees to casual poetry readers.
