ABSTRACT
This essay analyzes the problem of poet Richard Wilbur's metaphysics. It explains Wilbur's metaphysical vision and how he avoids doctrine in his poetry. The existence of the ordering mind in Wilbur's poems which are seen through metaphors is also discussed here. It looks at the relationship between the perceiving mind and metaphysics, particularly in the poem "The Beacon," and the interrelatedness of the artistic mind and the possibility of metaphysical experience.
