From Alan Filreis' "Still Life Without Substance: Wallace Stevens' and the Language oif Agency": "And why does Stevens assess Giorgione favorably? Despite what his audience would expect from the poet of "The Man With the Blue Guitar, "with its clear debt to cubism, he seems to admire Vasari's premodern criticism of Giorgione; one may copy invariably from nature. Reading backwards to the source of Stevens's surprising interest in Giorgione, I would suggest that Stevens' use of McGreevy's Giorgione indicates a renewed suspicion of substantial replication.
