Wallace Stevens' paternal great-great-great grandmother was named Blandina.  The name also is somewhat familiar because of Saint Blandina , a Christian martyr of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius reign.  Blandina is featured in Stevens' poem "Analysis of Theme," which appears in Transport to Summer (1947). The poem is "playful," according to Eleanor Cook,  and begins with a seemingly nonsensical premise: "How happy I was the day I told the young Blandina of / three-legged giraffes" (1-2).  The poem is only one of Stevens' poems within the Transport to Summer collection that further explores the poet's work with theme and form.
