Poems by Wallace Stevens is a 173-page paperback from Vintage Books, a division of Random House, 1947. There is tanning inside and out. The binding is tight but may be dry due to age, the pages are clean and unmarked.
Twice winner of the National Book Award for Poetry, and winner of the Pulitzer and Bollingen Prizes, the late Wallace Stevens is regarded by most critics as one of the great American poets.
"Stevens...distills symbols, meaning, and what he calls 'ideas of order' from the crudity and the confusion of the actual. His ability to link the outer world of reality closely to the inner world of vision has been astonishing from the first." Louise Bogan in The New Yorker
