In this collection of essays, consummate poet Wallace Stevens reflects upon his art. His aim is not to produce a work of criticism or philosophy, or a mere discussion of poetic technique. As he explains in his introduction, his ambition in these various pieces, published in different times and places, aimed higher than that, in the direction of disclosing "poetry itself, the naked poem, the imagination manifesting itself in its domination of words." Stevens proves himself as eloquent and scintillating in prose as in poetry, as he both analyzes and demonstrates the essential act of repossessing reality through the imagination.… (mehr)

This selection of essays represents Stevens's thought about the craft and meaning of poetry. Based primarily on talks that he gave over a period of years the essays are informative while also being difficult and problematical at times. In their difficulty they mirror much of his poetry. ( )

Talking of poetry is a kind of poetry, and Wallace Stevens does his best to assert that. Being a man known for his dense and wildly imaginative poetry, his prose is no different. In the seven essays collected here, he winds a path through reality, imagination, poetry, philosophy, and religion. Along the way, we get a momentary glimmer of his views on the Bible, communism, and the state of literature and art in his day. How any man could be this linguistically and philosophically limber and still work as the vice president of an insurance company is beyond me. The casual reader must be warned, though, that this book, although slim, is jam-packed and will take a steady mind to get through. ( )

Not an easy read; this poet's prose is leaden compared to his verse, but it is worth the work for the brilliant ideas embedded in the rhetoric. ( )

One function of the poet at any time is to discover by his own thought and feeling what seems to him to be poetry at that time.
