Conference: Wallace Stevens, New York, and Modernism

A reprint of  an advertisement of interest.

Gallatin School, New York University
March 4–6, 2010

New York University’s Gallatin School will host a conference, co-sponsored by the Poetry Society of America, on March 4, 5, and 6, 2010, on the work of Wallace Stevens. Stevens’ poetry will be at the center of the conference, and speakers include some of Stevens’ most distinguished readers—scholars and poets alike. Presentations will consider Stevens’ early work in New York in relation to the temper of the times, but also how his continuous relationship to the city might have helped to shape his later poetry. Those interested in attending or in receiving more information should contact
