    Dear Hugh Wilson,<br>
    <br>
    Your kind words take my breath away, as did Hannibal&#39;s and those of
    others&#39;.  I am really grateful and humbled.<br>
    <br>
    I have not had either the occasion or the will to get back to
    scholarship since retiring and moving to the Asheville, NC, area,
    mainly because we learned after the first year of our retirement
    that my wife had a difficult brain tumor; the resultant operation
    was a disaster.  She died last year, after almost fourteen years of
    enduring her troubles.  I wrote a memorial; if I can find it, I&#39;ll
    attach it.<br>
    <br>
    But I haven&#39;t been altogether inactive.  I teach every term at our
    remarkable College for Seniors at UNC Asheville, part of the
    imaginative and flourishing Center for Creative Retirement
    (wonderful name -- and I&#39;ve had fun amicably mocking it in a couple
    of public presentations!).  It has been my salvation in many ways.
    The thousand or so members of the Center are very interesting
    people, and Center members enjoy a broad sense of collegiality. 
    This term, I&#39;m doing Vergil; next term, Dante; and in the Spring <i>Macbeth</i>
    and <i>Othello</i>.  I feel downright privileged.<br>
    <br>
    My very best regards, Hugh,<br>
    <br>

        <p class="MsoNormal">Dear Hannibal Hanlin,<br>
          <br>
          Many years ago, I corresponded with, and then finally met, a
          hero of mine, a Latin professor who had brilliantly and even
          seductively edited the first, second, and fourth books of
          Vergil&#39;s <i>Aeneid</i>, Roland Austin.  My wife and I stayed
          with Roland and his hotblooded Scottish wife in their home in
          the Cotswolds. I recall that once, when we were driving to a
          pub for lunch, Roland said was that he felt very much like a
          back number.   Your comment about my anthology of Herbert and
          the 17c. religious poets being &quot;old&quot; made me wonder if,
          despite my somewhat advanced age (I&#39;m 85) I should now
          consider myself a back number and just recede from public or
          any other view.  I don&#39;t quite understand the point about my
          anthology being &quot;old&quot; though the observation that it leaves
          out women is  justified and embarrassing.<br>
          <br>
          In the end, I agree fully that new anthologies should be
          edited.  The publishers&#39; ways of getting them out, making
          their money, and letting them lapse (Norton not one of these)
          is disheartending, to say the least.<br>
