4.0 out of 5 stars one of our great poets Nov. 22 2001
Format:Paperback
how do you discuss 23 years, the last half of a great poet's long career, in such a short allotment of space. you really can't. i will say that some of his better works is in the first volume. that isn't much more i can say than pick up his collected works.

4.0 out of 5 stars by a poet of instinct and high sensibility July 20 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Williams was not trained as a poet, unlike the case of Pound (his friend) or Eliot (his "enemy"). He was thus fortunatrly refrained from any academic formula that might prevent one from being a great writer. Emily Dickison was that way made a great poet as was the case of Williams. But instinct and high sensitivity can provide one with fleeting inspiration for writing poetry usually of short piece, instead of "long-winded" ones. Paterson has some technical flaws. Yet taken into seperate parts, it still destinguishes itself. One doubt whether these poets can be great novelists at the same time. Writing novels needs more knowledge in composition, needs "operations" on the skills. In this sense, Williams and Dickinson differ from Eliot and Pound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential collection of a great American poet Oct. 31 2012
By Jon Corelis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
W. C. Williams's poems are about as important to modern American poetry as the Rocky Mountains are to the American contintent: you can't get around them. As the reviews here indicate, he's still not to everyone's taste, but his influence is enormous, largely defining great areas of subsequent American verse (most of which however in my opinion isn't nearly as good as Williams himself.) If you are at all seriously interested in modern American poetry, you should have this collection in your library.
