Among the great figures who have led the revolution in poetry in the twentieth century William Carlos Williams was unique in his closeness to the center of American life. Over a span of fifty years he worked to achieve an idiom which would reflect the American rhythm, both of speech and living. Opening with Professor Tomlinson's superbly clear and helpful inroduction, this selection reflects the most up-to-date Williams scholarship. In addition to including many more poems, Tomlinson has organized the whole in chronological order.
