About the Authors
  • The New Wallace Stevens Studies introduces a range of fresh voices and promising topics to the study of this great American poet. It is organized into three sections. The first explores concepts that have begun to emerge in Stevens criticism: imperialism and colonialism, his politics of utopia, his ideas about community-building and audience, his secularism, and his transnationalism. The second section applies recent methodological and theoretical advances that have left a prominent mark on literary studies - from world literature and ecocriticism to urban studies, queer studies, intersectional thinking, and cognitive literary studies. Essays in the third section reassess issues that have long inspired critics. Here investigations include Stevens's reception by later poets, his attitude toward modern fiction, different modes of his poetic thinking, aspects of his rhetoric and style, and his lyrical ethics. This volume captures a cross-section of the most striking recent developments in Stevens criticism.

    • Offers a concise review of recent perspectives that have emerged in Stevens scholarship over the past two decades
    • Presents case studies in a consistently engaging manner that combines accessible theoretical thinking with multiple applications to individual poems
    • Shows the continuing vitality of Stevens's work and its relevance for contemporary theoretical and methodological approaches and debates in literary studies
