Poet Richard Wilbur won Pulitzer twice
It is the birthday of poet Richard Wilbur (1921), who won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1957 and 1989 for his poetry collections Things of This World (1956) and New and Collected Poems (1988). Wilbur also translated works of the French playwright Moliére, including The Misanthrope, Tartuffe, and The School For Wives. Here is a reading of his poem Museum Piece, a light look at classical artists.
