IX of Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird

 

IXofblackbirds copyStanza IX of Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird by Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) has arrived. This was actually the stanza that inspired me to try to illustrate all 13 stanzas of the poem sequentially – I had composed this illustration and then thought – why not do all 13? Photograph and composition by me. Our journey has taken us through 8 stanzas, each illustrated very differently: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, and VIII. Read the whole poem here.
