— Wallace Stevens American poet 1879 - 1955
Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction (1942), It Must Change
Contexto: Eye without lid, mind without any dream —These are of minstrels lacking minstrelsy,
Of an earth in which the first leaf is the tale
Of leaves, in which the sparrow is a birdOf stone, that never changes. Bethou him, you
And you, bethou him and bethou. It is
A sound like any other. It will end.
