Editorial Reviews


“Barone and Finnegan have collected poems that in various ways respond to, ponder, analyze, critique, imitate, and celebrate the poems of Wallace Stevens, and part of this book’s power is its range of different kinds of poetries: turning from some of the lighter, more subject-driven poems to the weightier, more musically sophisticated poems is part of the delight. Stevens is a very serious poet, even or especially when he is most playful, and, as he said to Williams early on, ‘a book is a very serious affair.’ This book honors its subject.”—James Longenbach, author, The Art of the Poetic Line and Draft of a Letter

“One cannot help but be impressed by the range of poets represented here. One will also be impressed by the variety of stances and sources of inspiration expressed in the poems. This is a strong and important volume whose purpose is clear and effective. I found it to be both engaging and rewarding.”—John Serio, editor, Wallace Stevens Journal
