William Carlos Williams' Early Poetry: The Visual Arts Background (Paperback)Christopher J. MacGowan (author)
Paperback 160 Pages / Published: 01/12/1984
- Not available
The aim of this study is twofold: to document William Carlos Williams' interest in, and response to, such movements as vorticism, Dada and the American "local" school, and to apply this background material to a close examination of his verse as he moved toward the complex structure of "Spring and All". The book uses sources from unpublished Williams material, and draws upon many previously uncollected articles that appeared in the "little magazines" of the 1910s and 1920s. This study has an international scope, recognizing Williams' important relationship with Ezra Pound and also his interest in the work and theories of Kandinsky.
