Yes, thank you. I'm teaching Wilbur's Andromache again this semester. The students liked it a good deal, as do I.

Cheers,
John

What an illustrious career. One among the many things that never ceases to impress me about Richard Wilbur is his cultivated sense of aesthetic decorum, which I could not have described better than Mark Strand in his tribute: '... precision, the pursuit of rightness, / Balance, some ineffable decorum, the measured, circuitous / Stalking of the subject, turning surprise to revelation'.
I recently picked up Anterooms from the local bookstore and glad I did. Thank you for the link.
