Abstract:

Wallace Stevens: Poetry as Life delves into every phase of Stevens' life--from his childhood in Pennsylvania, his years at Harvard, and his short stay in New York to his life-long choice of a home in Hartford, Connecticut, and a career in the insurance business. The importance of Stevens' relationship to his father is stressed, and also the contribution to his growth of Santayana, Bergson, Pater, and Pascal, among others. His deep feeling for things French, and his unusual appreciation of painting are also assessed, as they relate to the development of his finely tempered artistry and special conception of art.
