The paper provides an analysis of Wallace Stevens' poem "The Man with the Blue Guitar". Specifically, the paper discusses the author's conception of poetry compared to classicism and to another trend of modernist poems. A copy of the poem is included at the beginning of the paper.
From the Paper:"Indeed, Wallace Stevens' work differs in multiple ways from Pound's. Stevens focuses mainly on the frontier that lies between imagination and reality. He believes that poetry is what humans do: the poet is aware of his role in society. This point of view over the authorial voice parallels some romantic concepts, a paradox since most modernist poets tended to escape from the formalism and ornament diffused by the romantic movement.
