Tim Morris's Wallace Stevens: Poetry and Criticism has just arrived from the excellent Salt. In his introduction, Morris states that there are a surfeit of books of Stevens criticism, and almost apologises for his effort. Well, from the first few pages that I've read (it only landed chez RSB yesterday), it seems pretty solid to me. The only other Stevens criticism I've read is Helen Vendler's Wallace Stevens: Words Chosen Out of Desire which is as good as you would expect from the Grand Dame of American poetry criticism, but it's the The Letters of Wallace Stevens that, for me, offer the most insight.
