Book Description

5 Aug 2010

Wallace Stevens is for many readers the supreme poet of twentieth century America, his unique voice combining meditative speculation with what he called 'the essential gaudiness of poetry', in an oeuvre of astonishing profusion and exuberance.

The Selected Poems was compiled by the poet at the request of Faber & Faber, in 1953, shortly before his death, and was intended to be representative of the range of his acheievement, from the whimsical and exotic lyrical inventions of Harmonium to the pondered large-scale and crafted masterpieces of his middle years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent selection 27 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful selection. I was new to WS, but bought this for my husband. We have both enjoyed it very much. The poems in this selection are of course similar in voice, but there is a good variety of composition: some short, some very long, etc. Includes 13 ways to look at a blackbird (my favourite so far), a rabbit as king of the ghosts, as well as many others.
