Ideas of Order

Ideas of OrderWallace Stevens is one of the best poets, not only of the twentieth century, but ever when he s not being witty, which makes me think of the worst dad jokes dad can devise and when he s not droning on about how the poet is some sort of mega prophet who will save us all from well, he doesn t say what it saves us from, but it is surely the pose most likely to induce eye rolling fever in a reader So, about 5 10% of the time, Stevens is really, really great Check out Farewell to Florida, Sad Strains of a Gay Waltz, Waving Adieu Adieu Adieu, The Idea of Order at Key West, Botanist on Alp 1 2, Winter Bells, Anglais Mort a Florence, A Postcard from the Volcano and, despite its eye roll inducing quotient, Academic Discourse at Havana. Ideas of Order is Wallace Stevens second book of poetry It contains his famous poem The Idea of Order at Key West As with his first book, and probably in all his books, the use of words is to be appreciated rather than finding a particular meaning or insight from them Though building upon the nothingness that The Snow Man started, he does examine the issue of nothing, of blending with the skies and stars, of being there while not being there The act of reading is one such example that he likes to explore the reader becoming the book One of his best poems is in this book A Re Statement of Romance Which is amusing to some degree in a sardonic way The night knows nothing of the chants of the night It is what it is as I am what I am Stevens, as always, is a poet to be enjoyed in small doses. This collection left me speechless Favorite poems include Waving Adieu, Adieu, Adieu, Mozart, 1935, Botanist on Alp No 1 , Evening Without Angels, Academic Discourse at Havana, and Re Statement of Romance Read in one sitting Could not put down for the life of me. Mixed thoughts about this one.I m new to the poetry of Wallace Stevens I wanted to check him out because I heard that he was an early influence on Robert Creeley There are some great poems in here, some poems that have a few excellent lines or stanzas and then several poems which completely baffled me Had no idea what some of the poems meant and perhaps they didn t have any particular meaning but maybe just a certain music that appealed to Stevens own ear My favorite poems from this collection were Mozart, 1935 and Re statement of Romance.I did find it interesting overall and I usually try to avoid overused adjectives like unique but I think it might apply in the case of Wallace Stevens as his poetry is unlike any other form I have encountered to date.
