Paterson by William Carlos Williams( Book )

51 editions published between 1848 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long recognized as a masterpiece of modern American poetry, William Carlos Williams' Paterson is one man's testament and vision, "a humanist manifesto enacted in five books, a grammar to help us to live" (Denis Donoghue). Paterson is both a place - the New Jersey city near which Williams lived - and a man: the symbolic figure in whom the person (the poet's own life) and the public (the history of the region) are combined. Originally four books (published individually between 1946 and 1951), the structure of Paterson (in Dr. Williams' words) "follows the course of the Passaic River, whose life seemed more and more to resemble my own: the river above the Falls, the catastrophe of the Falls itself, the river below the Falls and the entrance at the end into the great sea." Book Five, published in 1958, when the poet was seventy-five, affirms the triumphant life of the imagination, in spite of age and death. This edition has been completely re-edited by noted Williams scholar Christopher MacGowan of the College of William and Mary and, in addition to presenting the most authoritative text possible, contains invaluable notes identifying Williams' sources and references

The great American novel by William Carlos Williams( Book )

9 editions published between 1923 and 2003 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1923 in Paris in an edition of three hundred copies, this short novel by the great American poet is "a satire on the novel form in which a little [female] Ford car falls more or less in love with a Mack truck," as Webster Schott writes. For the most part, however, the work is a serious attempt to write a novel with the recognition that such an act is nearly impossible to accomplish within established conventions, and, in the end, Williams pokes great fun at all those serious young authors bearing the burden of their attempts to write the "great novel."

The correspondence of William Carlos Williams & Louis Zukofsky by William Carlos Williams( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Correspondence of William Carlos Williams and Louis Zukofsky chronicles the professional and personal relationship between Williams and Zukofsky as they present one another with criticism, suggestions and confidences that are at turns touching and astonishingly candid. In addition to delving into the creative processes of the two men, this exciting and extensive collection provides important insight into the development of Modernism and into literary icons such as Ezra Pound, E.E. Cummings and T.S. Eliot. The analytical voice of Zukofsky and the experimental style of Williams radiate in these letters, creating a vivid and invaluable document of American literature."--Jacket
