Praises Hampshire Life coverage of Richard Wilbur

I just read this week’s Hampshire Life (Oct. 20-26) and you hit a home run with this issue about Richard Wilbur.

Your editor’s letter provides a good introduction, the main article was excellent and really made me feel that I know what kind of a poet and person that Richard was, as well as conveying the ambience of the eclectic small town of Cummington, and I liked Bill Dwight’s Friday Takeaway as well. The calendar section is always useful too, and the trivia test is fun.

I’m an 84-year-old retired University of Massachusetts professor, a member of the age group that feels you have to read the local paper.
