About William Carlos Williams

WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS (1883- 1963) was the great American contemporary of those other great American poets who went to Europe - Pound, H.D. and Eliot (for whom he felt a settled aversion). Staying at home, pursuing a serious medical career alongside his poetic vocation, Williams came to epitomise the other modernism which sought to build an American poetry out of American English and, as it were, in the teeth of traditions received from abroad. He wrote plays, novels and major prose works (in particular, In the American Grain) as well as poems.
