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:

    There must be no cessation
    Of motion, or of the noise of motion,
    The renewal of noise
    And manifold continuation....

    Revolution
    Is the affair of logical lunatics.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    How clean the sun when seen in its idea,
    Washed in the remotest cleanliness of a heaven
    That has expelled us and our images . . .
    The death of one god is the death of all.
    Let purple Phoebus lie in umber harvest,
    Let Phoebus slumber and die in autumn umber....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    ‘Mother of heaven, regina of the clouds,
    O sceptre of the sun, crown of the moon,
    There is not nothing, no, no, never nothing,
    Like the clashed edges of two words that kill.’
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
