The master music maker of modern American poetry. His poetry has a very rare polysyllabic kind of intellectual beauty. Stevens in his poetry takes to other worlds in language and feeling. 'Beauty is momentary in the mind the fitful tracing of a portal/ But in the flesh it is immortal. There is difficulty in Stevens complexity but it usually yields a sense of the sublime and deeply meaningful. The best in my opinion of the whole twentieth century American lot.
