Milliman consultant Dan Skwire reviews two new books about poet Wallace Stevens, considering especially how these books offer a nuanced understanding of the relationship between Stevens' insurance career and his writing. This book review follows up on an article published in Contingencies in 2007 about the working life of Wallace Stevens.

This article appeared in the November/December issue of Contingencies, a bimonthly magazine published by the American Academy of Actuaries.
