• Stevens, Wallace

    Wallace Stevens (1879 – 1955) was a major American poet who in 1975 was described by the distinguished critic Harold Bloom as “the best and most representative American poet of our time” though his ground-breaking poetry only became generally recognised and acknowledged towards the end of his life.  Whilst he was not a close member of any literary circles during his lifetime – his professional life was spent working in insurance law – his poems were strongly influenced by his life-long interest in modern literature and modern art more generally.
