Tags: Translations hibernation, Complete Sophocles, Richard Wilbur biography

I've removed the Sophocles play excerpts from the site's Translations page, now that HarperCollins plans to publish the versions Jim Scully and I have made of Sophocles' seven plays in August 2011. Some of this material may eventually be restored to this and our sister site,

I'm also one-third of the way through my critical biography of Richard Wilbur––including his fascinating and largely unknown combat service in WWII––and expect to finish the entire project by December, 2011. For Wilbur fans out there, his latest book, Anterooms, will appear in November 2010.

    As soon as its available, I hope you'll let me know.

    One of the next poems I want to annotate is Wilbur's "Love Calls us to the things of this world". Wish me luck...
