The collected poems of Wallace Stevens by Wallace Stevens( Book )

268 editions published between 1923 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 4,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Collected Poems" is the one volume that Stevens intented to contain all the poems he wished to preserve, presented in the way he wanted. An essential collection for all readers of poetry, it is an enduring monument to his dazzling achievement. Originally published in 1954 to honor Stevens's seventy-fifth birthday, the book was rushed into print for the occasion and contained scores of errors. These have now been corrected in one place for the first time by Stevens scholars John N. Serio and Chris Beyers, based on original editions and manuscripts. --

Opus posthumous by Wallace Stevens( Book )

115 editions published between 1957 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 2,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Opus Posthumous first appeared in 1957, it was an appropriate capstone to the career of one of the most important writers of the twentieth century. It included many poems missing from Stevens's Collected Poems, along with Stevens's characteristically inventive prose and pieces for the theater. Now Milton J. Bates, the author of the acclaimed Wallace Stevens: A Mythology of Self, has edited and revised Opus Posthumous to correct the previous edition's errors and to incorporate material that has come to light since original publication. A third of the poems and essays in this edition are new to the volume. The resulting book is an invaluable literary document whose language and insights are fresh, startling, and eloquent
The necessary angel : essays on reality and the imagination by Wallace Stevens( Book )

60 editions published between 1942 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Necessary Angel by Wallace Stevens "In this book, the first collection of his prose works, he accounts in scintillating language for the peculiarly modern and sometimes deliquescent fervor that has prompted his poems. Few poets have written so characteristically about their own craft." 'Perspective'U.S.A. "These are rich essays, simply constructed yet richly and elegantly written." 'Hayden Carruth, The Nation "The most welcome attribute of the book is its humane good sense, equally manifest whether Stevens is discussing a desolate Pennsylvania churchyard. Plato's images or the personalities of those who prefer a drizzle in Venice to a hard rain in Hartford.' 'New Republic "It is a rare pleasure to breathe the atmosphere of confidence and wholeness which distinguishes the world of Wallace Stevens. Here we are refreshed by certainty without fragmentariness, by joyous possibilities without dishonesty. Here we find a moral and philosophical center through which reality may be repossessed and re-created with each new poetic act." 'C. Roland Wagner, The Hudson Revie
