The New York TimesMr. Williams is an old pro of the conversational barroom line, the rangy line…that Walt Whitman and Robinson Jeffers used in trying to lasso and hogtie the whole of American experience. It still serves him well…Writers Writing Dying is a solid addition to Mr. Williams's house of verse, and in it he pays his respects to literary ancestors. Their names are planted throughout like grave markers: Frost, Hopkins and Colette; Blake, Dickens and Larkin; Keats, Yeats and Rilke; Basho, Bishop and Neruda—and many more.
