Wallace Stevens Reads His Own Poetry

This little collection gives you access to Wallace Stevens (1879-1955), one of America’s great poets, reading his own poetry. Among the poems, you will hear “The Idea of Order at Key West,” “The Poem that Took the Place of a Mountain,” “Vacancy in the Park,” and “To an Old Philosopher in Rome.” For more, you should see our previous post, Listening to Famous Poets Reading Their Own Work, and then below watch the clip below of ever-prolific Yale literature professor Harold Bloom reciting Stevens’ “Tea at the Palace of Hoon.”
