Robert Wrigley is the author of numerous collections of poetry, most recently Anatomy of Melancholy & Other Poems (2013), which won him the Pacific Northwest Book Award. During his visit to Butler, Wrigley sat down to talk with Manuscripts staff member Matt Del Busto about his most recent collection, titled after Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy, written almost 400 years prior. They discussed the power of poetry and melancholy in our lives. In 2016, Wrigley retired from a forty-year teaching career and currently lives in Idaho “in the woods on the side of a mountain” with his wife.
