This expansive and definitive volume (supplanting his Pulitzer Prize–winning 1987 New and Collected Poems) incorporates his strong 2000 book Mayflies, along with 13 new poems which (like Mayflies) alternate nostalgic affection with learned humor: a Frostian lyric set in Key West considers "houses built on sand" which nevertheless "glow like the settings of some noble play.

Collected Poems 1943-2004 is the comprehensive collection of Wilbur's astonishing, timeless work. It will serve as the most referenced trove of this beloved poet's best verses for many years to come. In Trackless Woods In trackless woods, it puzzled me to find Four great rock maples seemingly aligned, As if they had been set out in a row Before some house a century ago, To edge the property and lend some shade.

The joy of a new love, the birth of a first child, the welcoming home of a son from war, the first acquisition of this Wilbur work- all treasures to be found in the same trove! I have purchased four copies; two as gifts, one for daily reading, and one for a backup. This author's writing is a timeless vehicle to transport the open mind through its incontinent imagination. If "Children of Darkness" isn't a walk through a gloomy, haunted forest, then Moby Dick is just a fishing trip. Mr. Wilbur's facility in forcing words into devilishly tight spaces, is at once enviable and incomprehensible. For me, his work has resulted in the premier literary discovery of my life. I would I could summon his art to express the joy I derive from reading this incomparable poetry. Thankful I am that we are from the same century; true genius living in my time!

Soldier, philosopher, scholar -- his poems are fresh and timely and resonant. Some are riddles, some are observations on the news of the day, one is not labeled as a haiku but is in fact a string of haikus in perfect meter and a few actually even rhyme (hence perhaps the non-haiku label) on a nature event in Japan.
Unexpected was his translations from French poets Molier and Francois Villon into English meter and rhyme. The book arrived pristine and impressive in size and scope.

Richard Wilbur is undoubtedly the best poet of the last half of the 20th century. This book collects all his poetry other than Mayflies (published later) and a couple translations. Buy It!

I have the 1988 edition, so it is outdated, but still a good buy. There is a newer edition which also features his more recent work.

Wilbur never disappoints.

This Pulitzer Prize-winning collection contains all of Wilbur (except his great translations of Moliere and Racine) in reverse chronological order of his books from 1989 to 1954. This is the opposite of most poetry collections, so it seems strange to have the poems get less confident as you read on. Still, the final poem, "The Beautiful Changes," is near-perfect and perfectly sums up Wilbur's paradoxical outlook: beauty is eternal and ever-changing.

Wilbur is old school. He is all about meter and rhyme and beauty. His command of sound and sense is second to none alive. (He has edited a collection of Poe's poetry and is famed for his accurate verse translations of Moliere's plays.)

As I read through this book, I put a star by every poem I liked. Flipping through it now, I see there is a star by almost every poem. I did not find Wilbur as deep or as challenging as Frost or Yeats, poets he is compared to by other reviewers on this site. I can, however, appreciate his mastery of the craft of formal poetry. This is not some bad pseudo-Shelley but really a poetry in the language of our time about the issues of our time.

If you detest rhyme, complex stanzas and short, potent lyrics, by all means avoid Mr. Wilbur. But if you find delight in the artful manipulation of language then you are depriving yourself of happiness in not reading this collection.

UPDATE: Wilbur has released a new COLLECTED POEMS in 2004 that supecedes this edition. It only adds a score or so of poems, but I recommend it because there are a few new ones like "Man Running" that no Wilbur fan should be without.
