Description
Here in a single volume are the 272 extant letters written by Wallace Stevens to the woman with whom he shared his life, Elsie Viola Kachel. Written over 25 years, the correspondence reflects Elsie's evolving relationship with Stevens, initially as his dear friend, then as his fiancée, and later as his wife. Taken collectively, these personal letters from one of America's most important poets reveal aspects of Stevens's personality that his poetry discloses more obliquely. Most significantly, the letters demonstrate Stevens's devotion to his wife through years of an uneven and often distant partnership.

"Donald Blount, who has expertly arranged and introduced these letters, is surely right in that Wallace Stevens and his wife Elsie 'had a language and a world that we will never fully understand.' The writings in this book are, as Stevens put it in a poem to his beloved, 'like a glimpse of skies.' Yet, thanks to Blount, the formulations of their complex relationship—their devotions, tensions, shadings, angled sympathies—are rendered more distinct than ever before."—Alan Filreis
