Richard Wilbur R.I.P.

From Cynthia Haven I have just learned that Richard Wilbur is dead at age ninety-six. This is what I recently wrote of this great poet: “Eschewing confession, trendy politics, and incoherence, Wilbur since the 1940s has remained a reliable and sophisticated pleasure-giver, in an unapologetically old-fashioned way.”
