Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) was awarded the Bollingen Prize in Poetry, two National Book Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize. John N. Serio has been the editor of The Wallace Stevens Journal for more than twenty-five years. He is a professor at Clarkson University in upstate New York.
"Far more than Eliot or Pound, Stevens wished passionately to be
above all a poet of twentieth-century America and its American
English; and he had the luck, as they did not, to write with
increasing genius to the end of his life." -Helen Vendler, The
New York Times Book Review
