Wilbur Richard Purdy (1921-), poeta amerykañski Absolwent Amherst College i Harvardu. Prowadzi³ wyk³ady z literatury na kilku amerykañskich uniwersytetach. Walczy³ podczas II wojny ¶wiatowej. Reakcj± na wojenny zamêt by³ zbiorek wierszy The Beautiful Changes (1947), który uznano za typowy przyk³ad pr±du formalistycznego w powojennej poezji amerykañskiej. Zarówno pierwszy tomik, jak i nastêpne, Ceremony Things of This World Advice to a Prophet Walking to Sleep The Mind-Reader New and Collected Poems (1988), zaliczono do tego nurtu, a samemu poecie przyznano tytu³ jego najbardziej konsekwentnego reprezentanta. Wilbur chêtnie pos³ugiwa³ siê kunsztown±, tradycyjn± form±, która przywo³ywa³a angielskich poetów metafizycznych z XVII w., ale stanowi³a tak¿e reakcjê na zanik podstawowych warto¶ci w powojennym ¶wiecie, by³a prób± przezwyciê¿enia trudno¶ci artystycznego wyrazu. Silnie zintelektualizowane, ironiczne, medytacyjne wiersze Wilbura wyra¿aj± afirmacjê ¿ycia. Twórczo¶æ poety, która niezmiennie utrzymana by³a w poetyce formalistycznej, spotka³a siê z krytyk± autorów uprawiaj±cych wiersz otwarty, konfesyjny, ekspresjonistyczny (np. R. Bly

    BTL talks to Richard Wilbur about his life and work
    A Note on Richard Wilbur Richard Wilbur was born in New York City in 1921, and educated at Amherst College and Harvard. He served in the US army from 1943 until 1945. Wilbur's first book, The Beautiful Changes and Other Poems was published in 1947. Since then he has published several volumes of poetry, of which the most recent was New and Collected Poems (Faber, 1989). Another of our interviewees, Anthony Hecht, has this to say in an essay on Wilbur that first appeared in the TLS: "Let me try to list some of the virtues that distinguish the poetry of Richard Wilbur. First of all, a superb ear (unequalled, I think, in the work of any poet now writing in English) for stately measure, cadences of a slow, processional grandeur, and rich, ceremonial orchestration. His 'musicianship' is of so fine and conspicuous a kind that it has often been ignored, and sometimes even mocked by those who are militantly tone-deaf. Next, a philosophical bent and a religious temper, which are by no means the same thing, but which here consort comfortably together. Wit, polish, a formal elegance that is never haughty or condescending … And an unfeigned gusto, a naturally happy and grateful response to the physical beauty of the world, of women, of works of art, landscapes, weather, and the perceiving, constructing mind that tries to know them."

    Essays Index Reviews and Author's Notes American Poetry Poetry in California Poetry and Business Writing Fine Press Printing and Manuscripts Richard Wilbur:
    A Critical Survey of His Career Wilbur had an odd but idyllic childhood. In 1923 his family moved to North Caldwell, New Jersey where they rented a pre-Revolutionary stone house on a four-hundred acre estate owned by a charming but eccentric English millionaire. Few other children lived nearby, so the poet and his younger brother Lawrence amused themselves by wandering the farm and countryside. This pleasant rural boyhood surely helped form the imagination that later created such memorable nature poems as "Hamlen Brook" and "The Beautiful Changes."

    Richard Wilbur: Biography and General Commentary In the postwar years, when poets born between 1920 and 1935 often underwent dramatic changes in their writing styles, Wilbur remained someone who mastered a style early and continued to work within it. It is a style in a direct line of descent from Wallace Stevens : unabashedly rich in its diction, urbane in its metrical sophistication, and remarkably light-hearted and playful. His first and second books, The Beautiful Changes (1947) and Ceremony (1950), were influential volumes, and Wilbur was widely regarded in the 1950s as a poet no less important than Robert Lowell. His third collection, Things of This World (1956), was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Advice to a Prophet (1961) was followed by Walking to Sleep (1969), which was awarded the Bollingen Prize. The Mind-Reader was published in 1976, and a New and Collected Poems in 1987 (with twenty-four new poems). "The typical ghastly poem of the fifties was a Wilbur poem not written by Wilbur," wrote Donald Hall in 1961, "a poem with tired wit and obvious comparisons and nothing to keep the mind or the ear occupied." Hall added presciently: "It wasn’t Wilbur’s fault, though I expect he will be asked to suffer for it." Wilbur’s poetry has not, as Hall predicted, retained the high value it had accrued in the postwar years. Although his fame as a translator has continued to grow – his blank verse rhymed-couplet versions of several plays by Moliere have received wide praise – his poetry is often cited as an example of the formalism and the apolitical timidity that is associated with the 1950s. "Wilbur is still admired," Robert von Hallberg notes in his contribution to the

    1. "Making something of solitude" [Dale] You have given many interviews - at least a sizeable book full, edited by William Butts in 1990 - so that it will be difficult to avoid overlaps here. Let's get the inevitable preliminaries over and try to find some newer angles as we go. Can you tell us something about your childhood and upbringing - in a fairly rural setting, I believe? [Wilbur] Though born in New York City, I spent my childhood in a New Jersey country town called North Caldwell which was twenty miles from New York and has now been wiped out by spreading suburbs. In 1922 or so, my artist father was introduced on the golf course to Joshua Dickinson Armitage, a British textile manufacturer who had greatly prospered in America. Mr Armitage took a liking to him, and offered him at low rental a pre-Revolutionary stone house on the grounds of a 450-acre gentleman's farm which he had constructed in rural New Jersey. That's how we got there.
