Wallace spent most of his working years as an executive at an insurance company. So that's what they do behind those big desks all day! (Source.)

Surprise, surprise! Wallace was kind of a mysterious guy and a little hard to get a handle on. Check out this article aptly titled, "Wallace Stevens: A Poet's Double Life." Sounds like a bad spy movie. Okay, you're right. Shmoop would probably watch it. (Source.)

Want to spend time with some folks that are into all things "Wallace"? Here's the group for you. He has his own Society! (Source.)
