About this book

In a unique collection of essays devoted to one of America's most significant twentieth-century poets, a group of international contributors considers the Transatlantic nature of Stevens' poetry, providing original accounts of how a poet wary of 'influence' created a poetics which continues to haunt contermporary verse.

Reviews

'Stevens would have approved of this refreshingly creative form of commentary' - Jeannie Vanasco, Times Literary Supplement

'Re-affirming the complexity of a Stevens who resists poetic or national definition as either fully within the American grain or within the European one, Wallace Stevens Across the Atlantic will equally appeal to Stevens experts, scholars of American Modernism, and comparative literature specialists. Moreover, in an academic world whose growing suspicion of the European centre has sometimes led to a sharp rejection of the European tradition altogether, this volume is also a salutary reminder of the interpretive riches to be gained from a refusal of any easy amalgamation between "Europhilia" and "Eurocentrism"'. - English Studies
