Wallace Stevens

The poet Wallace Stevens is said to have been baptized a Catholic during his last days suffering from stomach cancer. This account is disputed, particularly by Stevens's daughter, Holly, and critic, Helen Vendler, who, in a letter to James Wm. Chichetto, thought Fr. Arthur Hanley was "forgetful" since "he was interviewed twenty years after Stevens' death." In his response, Chichetto noted that Vendler ignored "the testimony of Dr. Edward Sennett (in charge of the Radiology Dept. at St. Francis Hospital when Stevens was admitted both times) and the Sisters with whom he talked in 1977 (and later) who believed Fr. Hanley's account."

Famous quotes by wallace stevens:

    Life’s nonsense pierces us with strange relation.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    How full of trifles everything is! It is only one’s thoughts that fill a room with something more than furniture.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Yet to speak of the whole world as metaphor
    Is still to stick to the contents of the mind
    And the desire to believe in a metaphor.
    It is to stick to the nicer knowledge of
    Belief, that what it believes in is not true.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    His firm stanzas hang like hives in hell
    Or what hell was, since now both heaven and hell
    Are one, and here, O terra infidel.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    behold
    The approach of him whom none believes,
    Whom all believe that all believe,
    A pagan in a varnished car.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
