A fruitful pairing of literary and biographical interpretation, Wallace Stevens and the Seasons follows Steven's poetry through the lens of its dominant metaphar - the seasons of nature - and illuminates the poet's personal life experiences reflected there. From Stevens's first collection, Harmonium (1923), to his last poems written shortly before his death in 1955, George S. Lensing offers clear and detailed examination of his seasonal poetry, including extensive discussions of Autumn Refrain, The Snow Man, The World as Meditation, and Credences of Summer. Drawing upon a vast knowledge of Stevens, Lensing argues that his pastoral poetry of the seasons assuaged a profound and persistent personal loneliness. An important scholarly assessment of a major twentieth-century modernist, Wallace Stevens and the Seasons also serves as an appealing introduction to Stevens for the general reader.

About the Author:

George S. Lensing is professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the author of Wallace Stevens: A Poet's Growth and coauthor of Four Poets and the Emotive Imagination: The Poetry of Robert Bly, James Wright, Louis Simpson, and William Stafford.

Review:

"Wallace Stevens and the Seasons has the mark of a meticulous and dedicated scholar, one who has lived with (and loved) the poetry of Wallace Stevens for over forty years. . . Lensing's study stands as one of the landmarks in Stevens scholarship. It provides a much-needed balance from purely theoretical approaches to one grounded not only in the poetry, but also in the man."
