  • Pages from Tales: Narrating Modernism's Aftermaths
    • Abstract: MORE OR LESS a century ago, T. S. Eliot published Prufrock and Other Observations (1917), "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" having appeared in Harriet Monroe's Poetry in 1915. Although modernism in all its cultural manifestations traces its origins to prior to World War One, both "Prufrock" and The Waste Land (1922), to which Ezra Pound also notably contributed, have clearly come to represent seminal moments in the narration of literary modernism in English. Wallace Stevens's Harmonium (1923) was understandably overshadowed by Eliot's experimental 1922 poem published with targeted Transatlantic reach in The Dial and The Criterion (with Eliot the critic already in the making). W. B. Yeats, of a clearly different ... Read More

  • Yeats, Stevens, Eliot: Eras and Legacies, an Interview with Marjorie
           Perloff
    • Abstract: Your first book, published in 1970, was devoted to Yeats, and for several decades you have written about, taught, commented, and reflected on many of the major twentieth-century poets, as well as, more recently, their twenty-first-century inheritors, explicating, in particular, the evolution of modernist and postmodernist avant-gardes. How would you compare and contrast the changing reputations and influence of such now-canonical figures as Yeats, Stevens, and Eliot on poetry and poetics both in their own times and since'Yeats, Stevens, Eliot' The major shift in our time is that Yeats is all but written out of histories of modernism, at least in the US. Courses on modernism tend to be almost exclusively on American ... Read More

  • Atlantic Triangle: Stevens, Yeats, Eliot in Time of War Ireland
    • Abstract: IN HIS REVIEW of the Faber and Faber Selected Poems, Donald Davie described Wallace Stevens as "a poet to be mentioned in the same breath as Eliot and Yeats and Pound. That is his place, and that is the company he must keep" (373).1 Since Davie, however, Stevens has seldom kept company with Eliot and Yeats, or with Pound. Frank Lentricchia has placed Stevens in a modernist quartet with Eliot, Pound, and Frost, yet comparative analyses of Stevens and Eliot, as of Stevens and Yeats, remain rare.2 It is rarer still to compose the three poets into a modernist trio: Stevens and Eliot, like Stevens and Yeats, may make an odd couple, but if two's company, then three's a crowd. And yet, this essay suggests, a three-way ... Read More

  • Crazy Jane and Professor Eucalyptus: Self-Dissolution in the Later Poetry
           of Yeats and Stevens
    • Abstract: … all talk about God, whether pro or anti, is twaddle.Fol de rol, fol de rol.PARTICULARLY IN THE TWO magisterial volumes The Tower and The Winding Stair, the later W. B. Yeats is a poet who might be typified by the weighty line, the bardic voice, forms like the poised ottava rima and meditative style that Helen Vendler calls "spacious" (Our Sacred Discipline 291). Late Wallace Stevens moves into sparer variants of his ongoing poetic preoccupations, offering himself as "a diffident minimalist," in Charles Altieri's phrase (321), substituting purgation for harmonium. These are overgeneralizations, of course. A parallel that interests me appears if I juxtapose two late sequences, focusing especially on each poet's ... Read More

  • "Where / Do I begin and end'": Circular Imagery in the Revolutionary
           Poetics of Stevens and Yeats
    • Abstract: THE "FASCINATION WITH GEOMETRIC FORMS," Miranda B. Hickman observes, "provided many modern writers with a language through which to imagine and articulate their ideals" (xiii).1 This article investigates the circular imagery in Wallace Stevens's and W. B. Yeats's poetry, arguing that both men's use of the circle as a recurring image can be read as reflective of their opposing political ideologies. Examining Yeats's "The Second Coming," "Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen," and A Vision, and Stevens's "Connoisseur of Chaos," "The Sail of Ulysses," "The Man with the Blue Guitar," and "Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction" reveals Stevens's modification of Yeats's universally subsuming circle into his own pluralistic and ...

  • "Dead Opposites" or "Reconciled among the Stars"': Stevens and Eliot
    • Abstract: MOST CRITICS have agreed that Wallace Stevens and T. S. Eliot had little affinity as poets, and this probably reflects a conclusion they reached themselves. In 1950, Stevens corrected William Van O'Connor's supposition that he knew Eliot slightly, insisting that they'd never met nor corresponded and protesting, "After all, Eliot and I are dead opposites and I have been doing about everything that he would not be likely to do" (L 677). O'Connor had misread an Eliot-themed issue of The Harvard Advocate (December 1938), attributing to him Allen Tate's contribution; Stevens actually wrote a rather more qualified "Homage to T. S. Eliot," noting that "His prodigious reputation is a great difficulty," and consequently ... Read More

  • The Idea of a Colony: Eliot and Stevens in Australia
    • Abstract: THAT MODERNIST LITERATURE encountered a frequently hostile reaction from its earliest audiences, whom we tend now to reproach in retrospect for their "shortsightedness" and "provincialism," is true just about everywhere. But in the antipodes, those reproaches have tended to be both more severe and more literal: "provincialism" isn't just a metaphor in the provinces, let alone the colonies, and therefore we—good, tasteful cosmopolitans—tend to round on our ancestors who expressed those "provincial" tastes with extra force. So much force, in fact, that we rarely pause to complicate reproach with explanation. Why would we, when the cultural prestige of what we now call literary modernism is at an all-time high' And ...

  • "We reason of these things with later reason": Plain Sense and the Poetics
           of Relief in Eliot and Stevens
    • Abstract: THE IMAGINATION, wrote Wallace Stevens, "is no more than a process." "These things imply an element of change" (CPP 680, 672). T. S. Eliot and Wallace Stevens are both poets whose mature work differs in style and scope from their earlier and perhaps more celebrated poetry. What follows is a meditation on the temporal dynamics of imagination in Eliot's and Stevens's later poetry and critical prose. Focusing on the Eliot of Four Quartets and The Use of Poetry and the Use of Criticism and the Stevens of "Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction," "The Auroras of Autumn," "The Plain Sense of Things," and The Necessary Angel, this essay explores each poet's mature interest in—and suspicion of—epiphanic modes of literary ...

  • Bir Karakuşa Bakmanın On Üç Yolu by Wallace Stevens
           (review)
    • Abstract: Taking its title from "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird," Gökçenur Çelebioğlu's Bir Karakuşa Bakmanın On Üç Yolu is the most comprehensive Turkish translation of Wallace Stevens to date. Compared to previous translations, the book features a rich selection from the early, middle, and late poetry—from Harmonium to Opus Posthumous. It also presents first-ever translations of major poems such as "An Ordinary Evening in New Haven" and "Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction," together with shorter and sometimes less canonical poems from Ideas of Order, Parts of a World, Transport to Summer, The Auroras of Autumn, and The Rock. The demanding task of covering such a large body of work, combined with the linguistic ... Read More

  • The Songs We Know Best: John Ashbery's Early Life by Karin Roffman
           (review)
    • Abstract: Most devoted readers of John Ashbery know the strange story of his first poems to see print: how a prep-school classmate submitted Ashbery's work to Poetry as his own, a fact their author discovered, to his intense chagrin, only when he read them in the magazine. Or, at least, most of us thought we knew this story. In Karin Roffman's gripping account of the poet's formative years, however, the incident forms part of a still stranger tale. The poetry thief, a boy by the name of Bill Haddock, haunted Ashbery during their time at Deerfield Academy like a demonic doppelganger out of a Patricia Highsmith novel, alternately befriending and tormenting him, spreading rumors that he was "an h.o." (homosexual; true) and ... Read More

  • Restless Secularism: Modernism and the Religious Inheritance by Matthew
           Mutter (review)
    • Abstract: Restless Secularism: Modernism and the Religious Inheritance is a daunting study of the relation between writing and religion in modernist literary discourse. With its broad-ranging focus on the work of both American and British literary practitioners of the last century—Wallace Stevens, Virginia Woolf, W. B. Yeats, and W. H. Auden—Matthew Mutter endeavors to rival what he nominates some of the "best recent books on twentieth-century literature and religion" (7): Pericles Lewis's Religious Experience and the Modernist Novel (2010), Amy Hungerford's Postmodern Belief: American Literature and Religion after 1960 (2010), and John McClure's Partial Faiths: Postsecular Fiction in the Age of Pynchon and Morrison (2007). ...
