Book Description

28 Sep 2000 Penguin Modern Classics
In his work as a physician, Williams had learnt the skill of objective observation which he applied to his poetry, examining, as he said, 'the particular to discover the universal'. Marked by a vernacular American speech and direct observation of the landscape and people of his native New Jersey, his poetry explores the 'raw merging of American pastoral and urban squalor. Emotionally restrained but rich in sensory experience, the poems were written according to the guiding concept: 'no ideas but in things' and those 'things', a red wheelbarrow, a group of trees, a river, convey the local and the particular with a vivid intensity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Selected Poems by William Carlos Williams 4 Jan 2012
By Fatima
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent collection of poetry and really highlights the talent of William Carlos Williams. The poem `This Is Just to Say' evokes the stolen pleasure of eating fresh plums. However, it is worth buying the book for the `Pictures from Brueghel' poems alone, because the paintings are brought to life with the images expressed in each stanza.

Unfortunately, I can only award the book four stars because the cover is so flimsy and the paper quality is poor.
