Extremely quirky physical expression in this performance of literary criticism.  I have tagged this “EDST 580” with this intention of using it as a counterpoint to an short essay about a discussion in a 1970 manuscript detailing the oeuvres of four pragmatist philosophers and opening the introduction to his manuscript from a quotation from another Wallace Stevens poem which originally appeared in publication with “The Auroras of Autumn” (below) in 1950.  I agree with Bloom that this is Stevens at his best– probably Harold Bloom at some of his best too for that matter… but the author, Charles Morris, of the history of philosophy… not so much…  READ ON>> for more context.
