What you li'l niggas know 'bout Wallace Stevens?
>>21030162He wallaced over his stevens.
>>21030162Harmonium-era poems are great. His later work became lost in his own portentousness IMO. Not a fan of his longer poems at all. Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock is one of my favourite poems.

He stevensed over his wallaces,
I think he should have written a children's book. Dr. Seuss illustrations. Weird beasties in big abstract nowhere landscapes.
>>21030162Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Niggerby Wallace Stevens, maybeIAmong twenty naked corpses,The only moving thingWas the pelvis of the nigger.III was of three minds,Like a classroomIn which there are three white men and thirty niggers.IIIThe nigger twisted in the autumn winds.It was a small part of the evening's entertainment.IVA man and his bicycleAre one.A man and his bicycle and a niggerAre none.VI do not know which to prefer,The beauty of a manhuntOr the beauty of a lynching,The nigger pleadingOr just after.VISpeakers filled the quiet streetWith barbaric bass. The vehicle of the niggerCruised it, to and fro.The localsFelt for the niggerAn indescribable hate.VIIO screenwriters of Hollywood,Why do you imagine magic negroes?Do you not see how the niggerCapers gleeful in his chaosIn the country around you?VIIII know noble accentsAnd lofty societal aspirations:But I know, too, That the nigger is involved And has to go.IXWhen the nigger shrank to nothing in the rear-view mirror,It marked the relaxationOf one of many layers of wariness.XAt the sight of niggersGazing in dull incomprehension,Even the most idealistic of maths teachersWill cringe inwardly.XIHe rode through BaltimoreIn a chauffeured motorcade.Once, a fear pierced him, In that he mistookThe shadow of his limousineFor niggers.XIIThe world is turning.The nigger must be twerking.XIIIIt was pleasant in the neighbourhood.People could live unmolestedAnd they were going to live unmolested.The nigger sat In the vessel bound for Liberia.
>>21030162he was a le atheist. I prefer Hart Crane, who's more religious.
>>21031193crane was le homosexual
>>21031245He at least has respect for sacred religious images. Imagine Wallace Stevens writing a poem like Lachrymae Christi... not gonna happen.
