Abstract:

William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) was one of the great forces in modern American poetry, a poet of rich and subtle effects, an innovator of critical importance, and a passionate advocate of native subject matter-- the everyday lives of the common people, the countless details, great and small, that make up the myth of America. Often overshadowed by old friends like Ezra Pound or rivals ilke T. S. Eliot, his poetry slowly emerged, in the 1950s and 60s, as the equal to that of both, and established itself as a model for younger poets, like the Beats. Like no one since Walt Whitman, Williams captured the sounds and rhythms of American speech, and in doing so he created a poetry as vivid and varied as the vast continent itself-- its urban and rural sides, its swirl of immigrants and multiracial strains, its grace and violence. At the same time, he was a poet of rare intimacy and delicacy. Discover here, in the poet's own versions, poems dedicated to capturing a people on paper, determined on taking listeners into the heart of their country.
