Wallace Stevens and the Demands of Modernity:  Toward a Phenomenology of Value

In his recent work, Charles Altieri has argued for the importance of the affects, which philosophy has too long subordinated to cognition and ethics.  In Wallace Stevens and the Demands of Modernity, Altieri argues that critics have failed to appreciate the degree to which modernist poetry, like modernist art, breaks from the epistemology that arose from cultures of empiricism.
