Great quality for a used book.

Contrary to the opinion of the previous review, this book offers an insightful overview of the nuances Stevens' work touches upon. Included in this work is information regarding his own life, his struggle with politics and poetry, a look at the multiple personae he used as his 'voices' when writing, his link to the Romantic poets, his use of the seasons, etc. While some of these essays could be a bit longer (As I would like to see), they are written by some of the top contemporary critics of Stevens and Modern Poetry. If you are at all interested in Stevens, this is not a bad place to begin reading criticism. These essays provide excellent introductions into some of the questions lurking around Stevens' rather opaque poetry.

I must agree with the "English PhD candidate" reviewer. The Cambridge Companions are usually solid. Stevens' poetry is complex, and draws on many different fields such as painting and philosophy. The essays in this volume will shed light on how they influenced his poetry. Stevens' poetry also matured over time in very delicate ways. The essay "Stevens' late poetry" in this volume will help readers to appreciate these subtle changes.

However, I must caution that some essays read too much into the poetry. This is not a flaw of this book per se, but rather an unfortunate tendency in contemporary criticism. For example, the essay on how Stevens' view of God has gradually become a kind of "difference" seems to have too much Derrida lurking in the background.
