About the Authors
  • This book aims to provide an in-depth introduction to the multifaceted life and times of Wallace Stevens, who is generally considered one of the great twentieth-century American poets. In thirty-six short essays, an international team of distinguished scholars have created a comprehensive overview of Stevens' life and the world of his poetry. Individual chapters relate Stevens to important contexts such as the large Western movements of romanticism and modernism; particular American and European philosophical traditions; contemporary and later poets; the professional realms of law and insurance; the parallel art forms of painting, music, and theater; his publication history, critical reception, and his international reputation. Other chapters address topics of current interest such as war, politics, religion, race and the feminine. Informed by the latest developments in the field, but written in clear, jargon-free prose, Wallace Stevens in Context is an indispensable introduction to this great modern poet.

    • Contains thirty-six clearly-focused chapters that give readers a broad overview of Stevens and multiple points of entry into the world of his poetry
    • Written by a distinguished group of international scholars, providing the most up-to-date scholarship on Stevens from around the world
    • Written in clear, jargon-free prose making it accessible to novices and scholars alike

    'Stevens will never be reduced to context. But in helping us see the ways he interacts with context, and in shifting lenses to gain a prismatic sense of this poet’s range and complexity, Stevens in Context is indispensable.' Bonnie Costello, The Wallace Stevens Journal
