Richard Wilbur


“One does not use poetry for its major purposes,
as means of organizing oneself and the world,
until one’s world somehow gets out of hand…”

anyone know where this quote came from?
I was searching through the sites on Wilburs poem, "The Pardon", and came across this quote believed to be spoken by Wilbur himself. I'm just curious as to which book it came from ?
