Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Stevens's poetry, or, especially, if you are just starting to read his work, this book needs to be on your shelf. The poems of Wallace Stevens are often difficult, and the beginning reader can be tempted to give up in despair. That's a shame, because his poetry is worth the trouble, repays the effort, and it will do so over the rest of your life. Sukenick's book is essentially a straightforward translation manual, and a very good one. Not every poem is found here, but a great many are, including most of the best and most well-known. Sukenick will greatly add to your understanding and enjoyment of what you are reading, and through it you will begin to crack the various aspects of the Stevens Code. Then, fledged, you will begin to fly on your own. It's a flight worth taking.
