What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Wilbur owes many of his ideas and his rhythms to Frost.  That’s not a bad thing, but not all his poems are brilliant.  Some, yes.  Not all.”

Ethan: “I’m always struck by the unashamed optimism of Wilbur’s poetry. For anyone who literature too dark or pessimistic, look no further than Richard Wilbur for the other side of the coin.”
