$45.00

William Carlos Williams is a beloved American poet whose imagist and modernist works remain some of the best from the era. Poems like “This Is Just to Say” and “The Red Wheelbarrow” are often assigned reading and sources of inspiration still today. Williams was the winner of the National Book Award for Poetry and a posthumous Pulitzer Prize. The Poetry Society of America named its premier prize after him. In his Autobiography, Williams recounts his life from childhood to late adulthood. In short, approachable chapters, he lends insight into his medical practice, his friendships with fellow poets, and his approaches to his craft. It is the best nonfiction Williams ever published, a crucial volume for any collector of American poetry.
