Summary Edward Clarke€considers a concourse of poets that move toward the late work of W.B. Yeats and Wallace Stevens. Sometimes encounters with predecessors are arranged by imitation or allusion, sometimes one poet is unconsciously influenced by another, and sometimes they meet by chance.€This book€surveys the later work of Yeats and Stevens through chapter length studies in order to unfold their very last poems, thereby following their relations with western literature and tradition, and showing€how€they transform€our readings of€earlier poets
