William Carlos Williams

Vi consiglio di leggere questo bell'articolo su William Carlos Williams di Adam Kirsch. "If you look at the lingua franca of American poetry today - a colloquial free verse focused on visual description and meaningful anecdote - it seems clear that Williams is the twentieth-century poet who has done most to influence our very conception of what poetry should do, and how much it does not need to do.Why is it, then, that almost fifty years after his death, the reputation of William Carlos Williams still seems to be haunted by a ghost of uncertainty?" nybooks.
