This essay explores Wallace Stevens's collection Parts of a World alongside Roland Barthes's discussion of the paradoxical "absence-as-presence" of the photograph. The collection marks an important transition toward the development of a new space beyond representation in Stevens's poetry-where the "figure" is revealed to be nothing other than the process of its own figuration.
