Wallace Stevens was not only one of America's outstanding modernist poets but also a successful insurance lawyer--a fact that continues to intrigue many readers. In this important extension of the recent law-and-literature movement, Grey reveals Stevens as a philosophical poet and implicitly a pragmatist legal theorist, who illustrates how human thought proceeds through "assertion, qualification, and qualified reassertion," and how reason and passion fuse together in the act of interpretation.

About the Author:

Grey Thomas

Thomas C. Grey is Nelson Bowman Sweitzer and Marie B. Sweitzer Professor of Law, Stanford Law School.

Review:

This lucid and insightful study of the poetry of Wallace Stevens by Stanford Law Professor Thomas Grey demonstrates that a lawyer can enrich our understanding of poetry and a poet enrich our understanding of jurisprudence.

The book was a great help to me in thinking about Stevens--a poet whom I don't know as well as I'd like, whom I often don't understand, whom I've never been able to read much of at a time, and whose poems I've never been able to hear as the products of a single voice. Grey helps one see them as such products-particularly by telling you when he thinks the voice goes off key, as in the 'Major Man' poems. Thanks to Grey, I feel prepared to go back to Stevens's poems and to read them with fewer guards up, with less suspicion and more sympathy. The book sketches a convincing picture of Stevens's motives and conflicts. Its last chapter, 'The Colors of the Mind, ' finishes off the sketch with bravura and conviction.
