Please join us for the dedication of the Wallace Stevens Walk.

On Thursday, June 11, at 5pm, employees of The Hartford Financial Services Group, members of Friends & Enemies of Wallace Stevens, as well as the general public will convene for a dedication of The Wallace Stevens Walk, a 2.4 mile self-guided walking tour that traces the path the poet took each day to and from his Hartford home.

Beginning at The Hartford, where Stevens served as vice president beginning in 1934, and ending at his former home at 118 Westerly Terrace, the Walk traverses the Asylum Avenue section of Hartford’s Asylum Hill and West End neighborhoods.

The course of The Wallace Stevens Walk is marked by 13 Connecticut granite stones, each uniquely carved and engraved with a stanza from “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird,” a poem among Stevens’ most well known and frequently studied works.
