William Carlos Williams

Author Code: AWCW

Born: Sep. 17, 1883 - Rutherford, New Jersey, USA

Died: Mar. 4, 1963 - Rutherford, New Jersey, USA

Educated at the Lycee Condorcet in Paris, the Horace Mann School in New York and the University of Pennsylvania medical school, William received his M.D. in 1906. While at college he met and became good friends with Ezra Pound who would later help him in getting his work published. In 1909, he published his first book, Poems, which was well-received. Williams continued as a family doctor while embarking on a writing career and was successful in both. Most of his poetry was of the Imagist school, however Williams himself called it Objectivism. His work was overshadowed by Eliot's Waste Land, but still managed a loyal following. In 1923, he published The Great American Novel, the first of his four novels. During the 1950's., Williams became a mentor to the poet Allen Ginsberg and was a great influence on many of the young poets of that era. Although he suffered a heart attack in 1948 and a series of strokes in 1949, he continued to write until his death in 1963. That year he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize posthumously, together with the Gold Medal for Poetry by the National Institute of Arts and Letters. His works include The Tempers (1913), Al Que Quiere! (1917), Kora in Hell: Improvisations (1920), Sour Grapes (1921), The Cod Head (1932), The Broken Span (1940), The Wedge (1944), Make Light of It (1950), The Desert Music and Other Poems (1954), Journey to Love (1955), The Farmer's Daughters (1961) and Pictures From Brueghel and Other Poems (1962).
