Famous quotes containing the words wallace stevens and/or stevens:

    You know that the nucleus of a time is not
    The poet but the poem, the growth of the mind
    Of the world, the heroic effort to live expressed
    As victory. The poet does not speak in ruins
    Nor stand there making orotund consolations.
    He shares the confusions of intelligence.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    A poem need not have a meaning and like most things in nature often does not have.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
