First published in 1957, this is a revised, enlarged and corrected edition of "Opus Posthumous", out of print since 1972. The book is the complement to his magnificent "Collected Poems" and the essays and lectures in "The Necessary Angel". A miscellany of uncollected writings are brought together - poems, plays, adagia (or aphorisms) and literary texts of various kinds. The book is an important part of the Stevens canon. In this edition, Professor Milton Bates has assembled virtually all the uncollected poetry and prose Stevens wrote after his Harvard years, together with more than three dozen pieces still in manuscript at his death.
