  • POEM: It Must Give Pleasure by Wallace Stevens (2/26/2012 5:36:00 PM)

    Jerome = Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus (Saint Jerome) , translator of the Bible into Latin, I think.

  • POEM: Sunday Morning by Wallace Stevens (2/25/2012 7:37:00 PM)

    Imagine quotation marks around (The Green Cockatoo) and (the main characters in the Poem are Mary and Jesus) in my previous comment; the site software seems to dislike double quote characters.

  • POEM: Sunday Morning by Wallace Stevens (2/25/2012 7:32:00 PM)

    The Green Cockatoo is the name of a play written around 1899 by Arthur Schnitzler, about the French Revolution: http: //www.archive.org/details/3486621 (in translation) . Coincidence? It's an interesting play and I wouldn't be at all surprised at Stevens referencing it in this particular poem (whatever else the green cockatoo refers to) .

    Daithi, I quite disagree that the main characters in the Poem are Mary and Jesus; Jesus is referenced rather indirectly and Mary not at all. It's an atheist poem for sure - verse 6 is about the implausibility of an eternal heaven, for example. But if religious folks like the poem as well, s'all good: -)
