Essays On Reality And The Imagination
Sobre o livro
In this collection of essays, consummate poet Wallace Stevens reflects upon his art. His aimis notto produce a work ofcriticism or philosophy, or a mere discussion of poetic technique.As he explains in his introduction, hisambition in these various pieces, published in different times and places,aimed higher than that,in the direction ofdisclosing "e;poetry itself, the naked poem, the imagination manifesting itself in its domination of words."e; Stevens proves himself as eloquent and scintillating in prose as in poetry, as he both analyzesanddemonstrates the essential act of repossessing reality through the imagination.
