. Stevens' poems are lyrical meditations, which glorified the natural world, as well as himself 'the poet, this eternal conductor', a man opens the harmony in the chaos of life. Not being a philosophy of poetry, his poetry reflects a desire to understand what the relationship between the philosophical doctrines and poetic thinking. Stevens pointed out that his poems speak primarily about how to interact with reality and imagination - so he preferred to formulate the duality of being and consciousness. The world, or reality, no matter how rough and shackles, he appeared as any, remains to man the natural environment, gives him a sense of rootedness

. Commitment to the real world affects the nature of the development of the second dominant theme Stevens, . prompted by his conviction, . that man makes judgments about the world only by indirect evidence, . perceiving it through the prism of subjective interpretations,
. Although consciousness is actively functioning only thanks to the fact that it incorporates the physical world, this world is inevitably transformed, reflected in consciousness, and he was separated from the real world of 'things as they are'. That way things that is after the imagination translated 'simple view of the truth', there is a certain analogue of the real world. Masterpiece Stevens notes about the highest form of fiction is precisely substantiates the idea that people should always believe in fiction, because he is not given to get rid of their interpretations of reality.
