Mind-Emptying in the Poetry of Wallace Stevens - The Middle Way
This paper studies Stevens' meditative method of mind-emptying by self-negation in his poetry. Five poems under review here including “The Snow Man” and “An Ordinary Evening in New Haven” best show how Stevens demonstrates the meditative process of mind-emptying in order to perceive a pure reality of emptiness as sunyata in the Middle Way. His method is a close parallel to the Zen mind practised by Buddhists to explore Emptiness, the idea of which is not mere emptiness as opposed to fullness, but it transcends and embraces both emptiness and fullness, making Full Emptiness in the Middle Way. The meditative process of mind-emptying is practised at four phases of detachment from the mind aimed at reaching a pure reality.
