Wallace Stevens

The poet Wallace Stevens is said to have been baptized a Catholic during his last days suffering from stomach cancer. This account is disputed, particularly by Stevens's daughter, Holly, and critic, Helen Vendler, who, in a letter to James Wm. Chichetto, thought Fr. Arthur Hanley was "forgetful" since "he was interviewed twenty years after Stevens' death." In his response, Chichetto noted that Vendler ignored "the testimony of Dr. Edward Sennett (in charge of the Radiology Dept. at St. Francis Hospital when Stevens was admitted both times) and the Sisters with whom he talked in 1977 (and later) who believed Fr. Hanley's account."

Famous quotes by wallace stevens:

    Music is feeling, then, not sound;
    And thus it is that what I feel,
    Here in this room, desiring you,
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    It is the unknown that excites the ardor of scholars, who, in the known alone, would shrivel up with boredom.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Yet to speak of the whole world as metaphor
    Is still to stick to the contents of the mind
    And the desire to believe in a metaphor.
    It is to stick to the nicer knowledge of
    Belief, that what it believes in is not true.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    On a few words of what is real in the world
    I nourish myself. I defend myself against
    Whatever remains.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    It is the sun that shares our works.
    The moon shares nothing. It is a sea.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
