The River Of Rivers In Connecticut

Wallace Stevens

astounding poem
Added by: BG
This is my favorite Stevens poem, I think--at least my favorite of his lyric poems. So many of his poems are these intense meditative and perceptual ecstacies. This is, perhaps, a meta-ecstacy. In other words, the River of Rivers is, I think, poetry itself; it flows, always changing, and requires an effort to meet its intellectual and esthetic challenges, but it never goes away (like a sea).
