In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to some of the greatest poets of our literature. Wallace Stevens was born in Pennsylvania in 1879. "Harmonium", published in 1923, became a landmark in modern American poetry with its startling imagery and meditations on art, reality and imagination. It was followed by "Ideas of Order", "The Man with the Blue Guitar and Other Poems", "Notes toward a Supreme Fiction", "Transport to Summer" and "The Necessary Angel". Stevens died in 1955.
