Synopsis

Wallace Stevens’ “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird” appeared  originally in 1917 and was subsequently published in his first book, Harmonium,  in 1923.  In a letter, Stevens once wrote that “this group of poems is  not meant to be a collection of epigrams or of ideas, but of  sensations.”  If this is indeed the poet’s intent, the poem provides  readers with no fewer than thirteen perspectives or observances about  blackbirds, but in those “thirteen ways” is the immeasurable culmination  of sensations.  Just as the poet’s imagination invites readers to  discover the infinite mysteries of the world and how these unify us in  unexpected ways, Corinne Jones’ new visual interpretation of Stevens’  poem invites us, again, to re-explore the multiplicity of observation  and subsequent knowledge.

This new trade edition, a 10x10 reprint of the original fine arts  book, juxtaposes Jones’s beautiful and sensual prints of blackbirds  against Stevens’s poetic text.  The result is that the life and power  inherent in each artwork is increased wonderfully and vibrantly when  taken as a whole.
