About this title

Synopsis:


Brogan traces in detail the Wallace Stevens increasingly sophisticated use of similes in order to demonstrate how they satisfied both his own intellectual needs and the needs of modern poetry. While thoroughly grounded in the poetry of Stevens, her book also explores the nature of language itself by demonstrating the possibilities, as well as the limitations, of either a romantic or a deconstructive conception of language


Originally published in 1986.
