      Things of this Worldby Richard WilburThe spectacular poems of Richard Wilbur’s Things of this World will last long after his pleasant pastoral ballads have faded from memory. Published in 1956, the collection of form and structured free verse centered on the New England countryside made him a superstar, establishing a template for Wilbur and modern nature poetry as we know it.

      Let me start off by saying solid poetry. There's was nothing that was bad per se. The style was simple but not mediocre. The poems themselves were very interesting. Their meaning what never completely obvious. Reading required work and patience, especially since several of his poems hinged on the last line or so. Pelicanus was awkward. Other than that, good poetry. My only complaint is not necessarily a criticism but an opinion, there was nothing exceptional in the poetry.

      Great formal skill of course, but too often in the service of mere prettiness, commentary not inspiration.
