2010 Albaugh Lecture


An Afternoon with Richard Wilbur

Tuesday, March 16, 2010, 3:00 p.m.
Memorial Reading Room

Join U.S. Poet Laureate and Pulitzer-prize winner Richard Wilbur for an informal, student-oriented discussion of poetry and his own poems. Wilbur, perhaps the greatest living American poet, is the author of nine collections of poetry, of translations of Molière and Racine, and of several children's books. As the Washington Post says of him: "Throughout his career Wilbur has shown, within the compass of his classicism, enviable variety. His poems describe fountains and fire trucks, grasshoppers and toads, European cities and country pleasures. All of them are easy to read, while being suffused with an astonishing verbal music and a compacted thoughtfulness that invite sustained reflection."

Sponsored by the Honors College and Phi Beta Kappa. Free and Open to the Public.
