I love the idea of this book: a major contemporary (for that time) poet writing about another major contemporary poet. I even have it on my own shelves, having bought it at a library book sale. However, I don’t see any reason to have it on Albertville’s shelves. This library doesn’t have a volume of Wilbur’s poetry, so why have a book about it? The library has two choices: add a collected book of Richard Wilbur’s poetry (a worthwhile purchase) and keep this book of criticism or let the book of criticism go.
