513. Auden, Stevens, or Both: Whose Age?

Thursday, 5 January, 12:00 noon–1:15 p.m., Beacon E, Sheraton

Program arranged by the Wallace Stevens Society

Presiding: Bart P. Eeckhout, Univ. of Antwerp

Speakers: Charles Francis Altieri, Univ. of California, Berkeley; Bonnie Costello, Boston Univ.; Rachel Galvin, Princeton Univ.; Lisa N. Goldfarb, New York Univ.; Aidan Wasley, Univ. of Georgia

Session Description:

In a TLS review of Aidan Wasley's The Age of Auden, W. H. Auden is pitted against Wallace Stevens: the latter's influence on postwar American poetry is downplayed in favor of the underestimated role played by the former. This roundtable considers the relations between the two: their aesthetics and critical essays, their poetic practice, and their respective influence on postwar American poetry.
