From the Paper:

"Poetry is a way in which people express themselves in words. It is how some communicate with the world. Wallace Stevens is a poet who introduced a new way of expressing himself through poetry. His sense of style is that of something many people have trouble defining. Stevens's main genre is a widely debated topic. His poetry seems to be a record of his own sense of being (McNamara 13). He relates to the things surrounding him in the world. Many critics have often referred to his style as being philosophical, artistic, and musical (Willard 127). He was a very modern poet for his time. Stevens wrote about his views on society and the world around him in a very abstract, or metaphysical, manner."
