dc.description.abstractThe poetry of affirmation has not been easy in our time. It has not been easy to achieve, not has it been easy to accept. The confusion and chaos in which we live and continue to live seem to deny the possibility of any real affirmation capable of persisting though change. It is easier, therefore, to impose upon a limitation that denies its ultimate seriousness, to think of it in terms of usefulness in some practical or moral sense. To think of it otherwise seems to risk the separation of art from life; and the change that modern art has cut itself off from life has been so prevalent as to require no documentation. The most serious accusation against Wallace Stevens has grown out of this change. [TRUNCATED]
