New and Collected Poems (Harvest Book)

New and Collected Poems (Harvest Book) - Richard Wilbur I did not read this entire book of poems. I enjoyed what I read, and will probably read more of Wilbur's poetry. The book is arranged in an interesting way. The most recent poems are at the beginning, and the oldest are at the end. So you are kind of reading backwards through the thoughts and works of this man.I do not read alot of poetry because I like to read fast, and poetry slows me down. So this was read in an effort to "read slowly" and think about what the poet is saying. A worthwhile effort, and I will come back later to read more.
