But otherwise the Library of America volume is to be preferred, because it is complete, not a selection, and because the poems are organized by the successive books of poems Stevens published.
That edition also contains letters and other ancillary material of interest. But the LOA volume also has very thin pages and little margin space for notations. Works out pretty well, and between the the two you have just about everything. So many wonderful words. That was my introduction to Wallace Stevens, and I was immediately and permanently smitten! I read something from one of them at least every day, and I still find gems that grab me by the mind. Stevens is definitely our best poet.
So many wonderful words! One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Stevens is an uncommon writer in that much of his greatest work he produced late in his lifetime. Perhaps its depth, maturity, and beautiful language result in some part from this fact. His poetry is delightful to read and hear, wrought with powerful imagery and provocative questions about art, the world, and reality.
I find myself reading certain poems regularly, over and over again. The Palm at the End of the Mind is a great collection, though it includes little more than Stevens' selected works - nothing in the way of comments, direction, or information about particular poems nor about Stevens and his views. First rate collection of Steven's poetry compiled by his daughter.
Collection is good for beginners and scholars as the important poems are all here. The best collection of Wallace Stevens' works, including the Snowman, 13 ways of looking at a blackbird, and more. I have owned this in paper for many years and am happy to add it to my kindle collection. One person found this helpful. He's among the best. As deep and hauntingly beautiful as english language poetry can be.
Many of the poems function like perfect philosophical sound sculptures, their articulation and resonance illustrating and illuminating the nature of thought, imagination, meaning, possibility, and tragedy.
