Stevens used the aesthetically enhanced language of his poems to create inquiries into the nature of reality that parallel those conducted by philosophers. He also maintained poetry's independence from philosophy. The first part of the book contains contributions that pursue various aspects of these parallels.

The contributions in the second part narrow down the scope to the issues within the philosophy of language. This section concentrates on the role of metaphor and figurativeness in Stevens' poetry"--"@en ;
