Wallace Stevens vs. Poetry: Blessed Rage for Order

National Poetry Month continues and winds towards its end. And while we had already had a bit of Wallace Stevens–and honestly I was looking for a reading of “The Emperor of Ice Cream,” which I greatly enjoy–after running across his reading of “The Idea of Order at Key West” and hearing it again, I knew I had to include it.

You can find audio for it and three other poems, all read by Stevens, here.
