Wallace Stevens: The Man with the Blue Guitar

Wallace Stevens lived from 1879 to 1955. He is one of the US’s greatest poets.  I found this on Poems on the Underground!

    "And they said then, ‘But play you must,

    A tone beyond us, yet ourselves,

    A tune upon the blue guitar

    Of things exactly as they are.’ "
