Loved for his decidedly American voice, for his painterly rendering of modern urban settings, and for his ability to re-imagine a living language shaped by the philosophy of a€œno ideas but in things, a€ William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) left an indelible mark on modern poetry. As each successive generation of poets discovers the a€œnewa€ that lives within his work, his durability and expansiveness make him an influential poet for the twenty-first century as well. The one hundred and two poems by one hundred and two poets collected in Visiting Dr. Williams demonstrate the range of his influence in ways that permanently echo and amplify the transcendent music of his language. Contributors include: Robert Creeley, David Wojahn, Maxine Kumin, James Laughlin, A. R. Ammons, Wendell Berry, Heid Erdrich, Frank Oa€™Hara, Lyn Lifshin, Denise Levertov, Wallace Stevens, John Ashbery, Allen Ginsberg, and a host of others.Poems Inspired by the Life and Work of William Carlos Williams Sheila Coghill, Thom Tammaro ... the author. charles bernstein, a€œFor Bill Charley Bill on Memorial Daya€ first appeared in the Literary Review (Fall 2004), Innovative Poetry Feature, anbsp;...
