Wallace Stevens: A Collection of Critical Essays. Twentieth Century Views Series.
Borroff, Marie, Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Marie Borroff, Wallace Stevens, Joseph N. Riddle, Hi Simons, Sister M. Bernetta Quinn, C. Roland Wagner, Harold Bloom, Ralph J. Mills, Jr., Roy Harvey Pearce, Louis L. Martz, Morton Dauwen Zabel, and Northrop Frye--all dealing with the biography and literary work of Wallace Stevens. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. Topics include the philosophical and poetic aspects of Wallace Stevens' poetry, a commentary on his "Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction," Stevens' view of the life of the imagination, his outlook on the world as meditation, and his image of man. A chronology of important dates in Stevens' life, a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection, and an eleven-item selected bibliography of books, articles, and essays on Stevens complete the volume.
