American poet Wallace Stevens has been at the centre of most major critical controversies of the 20th century, from the early emergence of New Criticism through the past decade's battles over poststructuralism. This collection of 10 essays by scholars of Stevens and modernism explores various aspects of the feminine in Steven's writings and his life. Together, the essays demonstrate how a focus on gender provides new insights into Steven's poetry and life, and new perspectives on the nature of language and poetic voice, the social and cultural shaping of American poetry and the viability of current critical debates. "Wallace Stevens and the Feminine" is divided into two parts. The essays in the first section, "Texts", concentrate on the centrality of the feminine in Steven's poetry and his search for poetic expression. Those in the second section, "Contexts", explore the influence of Stevens on contemporary female poets and his relationships with women, the impact of sociocultural conceptions of gender roles on the poet, and how these themes have intersected with Steven's art. In addition to the editor, contributors include Mary Arensburg, Jacqueline Vaught Brogan, Barbara Fisher, Celeste Goodridge, Paul Morrison, Daniel T. O'Hara, Rosamond Rosenmeier, Lisa M. Steinman and C. Roland Wagner.
