Blogger – Paul Harper: William Carlos Williams

William Carlos Williams .
For a man who conceived of the poem as a ‘small or large machine made of words’ , the poetry of William Carlos Williams can be remarkably tender .
Sometimes disarmingly simple & direct , sometimes a dense collage of details , sometimes not much more than jottings on a note pad , his work has been , & remains , highly influential ; not least among the Language Poets . Not bad for a local G.P .
