Knopf's 1997 edition of Stevens' Collected Poems Of... p. 358: 4th stanza, 1st line:
"Wanted to lean, wanted much most to be"
The same in Vintage 1990 edition: the Palm At The End Of The Mind, p. 279.
When googling this poem, I found the word "most" omitted from that line:
Is this just a lot of people's sloppy typing, or did Stevens re-do that line somewhere? Any insight? Thank you.
