Robert & Mary Bagg will read from & talk about their new book, Let Us Watch Richard Wilbur: A Biographical Study — the first biography of a major twentieth-century American poet. Robert Bagg is professor emeritus of English at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a poet, & a translator; Mary Bagg is a freelance editor. Of the biography, Tracy Kidder wrote, “This book tells the story of a fascinating & deeply civilized life, the life of the poet Richard Wilbur. It rests on long & deep research. It is well & succinctly told. And it is a true critical biography, which slights neither the subject’s life nor his work, but presents them as an integrated whole. Richard Wilbur, now in his middle nineties, will live on among the great American poets, & this biography rises to its transcendent subject.”
