„Perhaps
The truth depends on a walk around a lake“

— Wallace Stevens
Context: p>Perhaps The truth depends on a walk around a lake,A composing as the body tires, a stop To see hepatica, a stop to watch A definition growing certain andA wait within that certainty, a rest In the swags of pine-trees bordering the lake. Perhaps there are times of inherent excellence</p

„How simply the fictive hero becomes the real;
How gladly with proper words the solider dies,
If he must, or lives on the bread of faithful speech.“

— Wallace Stevens
Context: His petty syllabi, the sounds that stick, Inevitably modulating, in the blood. And war for war, each has its gallant kind. How simply the fictive hero becomes the real; How gladly with proper words the solider dies, If he must, or lives on the bread of faithful speech.

„We agree in principle. That's clear.“

— Wallace Stevens
Context: We agree in principle. That's clear. But take The opposing law and make a peristyle, And from the peristyle project a masque Beyond the planets. Thus, our bawdiness, Unpurged by epitaph, indulged at last, Is equally converted into palms, Squiggling like saxophones. And palm for palm, Madame, we are where we began. "A High-Toned Old Christian Woman" (1922)

„Apotheosis is not
The origin of the major man.“

— Wallace Stevens
Context: p>Apotheosis is not The origin of the major man. He comes,p>Compact in invincible foils, from reason, Lighted at midnight by the studious eye, Swaddled in revery, the object ofThe hum of thoughts evaded in the mind...</p

„I felt afraid.
And I remembered the cry of the peacocks.“

— Wallace Stevens
Context: I saw how the night came, Came striding like the color of the heavy hemlocks. I felt afraid. And I remembered the cry of the peacocks. "Domination of Black"

„After the final no there comes a yes
And on that yes the future world depends.“

— Wallace Stevens
Context: After the final no there comes a yes And on that yes the future world depends. No was the night. Yes is this present sun. "The Well Dressed Man with a Beard"

„There’s a meditation there, in which there seems“

— Wallace Stevens
Context: p>Is there a poem that never reaches words And one that chaffers the time away? Is the poem both peculiar and general? There’s a meditation there, in which there seemsTo be an evasion, a thing not apprehended or Not apprehended well. Does the poet Evade us, as in a senseless element?</p
