The Necessary Angel: Essays on Reality and the Imagination

Wallace Stevens

Publisher: Vintage Books

Format: Paperback

“In this book, the first collection of his prose works, he accounts in scintillating language for the peculiarly modern and sometimes deliquescent fervor that has prompted his poems. Few poets have written so characteristically about their own craft.” —Perspective —U.S.A.“These are rich essays, simply constructed yet richly and elegantly written.” — Hayden Carruth, The Nation""The most welcome attribute of the book is its humane good sense, equally manifest whether Stevens is discussing a desolate Pennsylvania churchyard. Plato's images or the personalities of those who prefer a drizzle in Venice to a hard rain in Hartford.''' —New Republic“It is a rare pleasure to breathe the atmosphere of confidence and wholeness which distinguishes the world of Wallace Stevens. Here we are refreshed by certainty without fragmentariness, by joyous possibilities without dishonesty. Here we find a moral and philosophical center through which reality may be repossessed and re-created with each new poetic act.” — C. Roland Wagner, The Hudson Review
