About This Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1982. reprint. h/b. Good, 22nd printing, missing d/j, black clothbound boards generally good; bronze/white cover & spine titling clear; text block generally firm; untrimmed pages crisp but with some annotations in pen; neat owner's inscription on front pastedown.. 8vo (230 x 150 / 9"" x 6""). The Collected Poems of Wallace Stevens is the definitive collection from the man Harold Bloom has called ""the best and most representative American poet.""Originally published in 1954 to honor Stevens's seventy-fifth birthday, the book was rushed into print for the occasion and contained scores of errors. Now corrected this is the one volume that Stevens intended to contain all the poems he wished to preserve, presented in the way he wanted. An essential collection for all readers of poetry, it is an enduring monument to his dazzling achievement.
