Description du produit

Revue de presse

"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." -- The Hudson Review

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If you love Wallace Stevens 30 mai 2015
Par NJL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you love Wallace Stevens, and I do, these articles will get you thinking. His theory that ideas aren't conceived but are perceived from nature is mind blowing, if you stop to consider the full implications. His idea of art being part reality, part imagination is another deep concept to ponder. But a note of caution: Stevens' prose is not good. He can be confusing... his word choice is often obtuse and the pieces that were delivered as lectures can read as if they came from the classic academician of movie and tv fame... who is brilliant but can't tie his shoes or get out of a shower of rain, as they say.Still... if you're into poetry, the form, or any art, for that matter, Stevens has some very pithy things to say. Be prepared to challenge your mind.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A necessary "Illusion"? =? 25 juillet 2016
Par Will - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
 This book throws much needed light on what Stevens is up to in his poetry! I am intrigued by his declared desire to make a poetry that can do the work of religion, theology, and metaphysics.  I more or less agree with his diagnosis of the problem of religious LITERALISM, but think his prescription inadequate.  He seeks to supplant religious tradition; a more humble and sophisticated project would be to translate or transpose traditional myth, metaphor, symbol, and analogy into a different key!  What would we think of HIS poems if we read them with the same lack of Imagination and sophistication with which he approaches biblical texts and theological discourse?  His AN ORDINARY EVENING IN NEW HAVEN, XVIII:  “say good-bye to the past … live in the present… paint in the present … not the state of thirty years ago.” Tantamount to saying:  Cezanne and Klee are great; therefore, Vermeer, Bruegel, and Constable are no longer viable models.  He has many thought-provoking passages, and enriching allusions to artifacts of high culture.  But his drive toward a “Necessary Illusion” ["Illusion"=?] is littered with unnecessary incoherences and self-contradictions.

His poem LES PLUS BELLES PAGES:  “Aquinas spoke of God. I changed the word to man.”   What does Stevens mean by "God"? How pedestrian, ethnocentric, and ignorant of the relevant disciplines can one be?  For all his sophistication, he seems as ignorant of what he rejects as are the pop atheists like Richard Dawkins whose scientistic materialism is as fundamentalistic as are the religious fundamentalists in their literalism. ’

His poem SUNDAY MORNING:  When earth is all the paradise we shall know, “The sky will be much friendlier then than now.”  This is perhaps a misreading of Dante, etc. or a relativist rejection of objective moral judgments—in which case a swift kick to his shins will unmask him, in another of his brazen self-contradictions.  Some of his passages seem to degenerate into something like psychiatric “word-salad."

What to make of the fact that, by some accounts Stevens died a baptized Roman Catholic? He said the God he worshiped In St. Patrick's Cathedral was not the God he met in a walk in the woods. Why not? Countless popular hymns bridge the gap quite nicely.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Muddle-headed and mediocre meanderings.... 21 mars 2016

A shockingly bad, boring and mediocre collection of critical stabs in the dark.
