This collection makes available work of one of our greatest American poets in the last decade of his life. The first section,Pictures from Brueghel, contains previously uncollected short poems, while the second and third parts are the complete texts ofThe Desert Music(1954) andJourney to Love(1955), originally published by Random House. In these books, Dr. Williams perfected his "variable foot" metric and achieved full mastery of the "American idiom" which was his lifelong first concern. Among the poems of this period is the long "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower" which W. H. Auden has called "one of the most beautiful love poems in the language."Pictures from Brueghelwas awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry only two months after William Carlos Williams' death on March 4, 1963.

About the Author

Besides being a practicing physician, William Carlos Williams (1883–1963) was a poet, short-story writer, novelist, translator, playwright, and essayist whose contribution to the development of modern American poetry grew out of his commitment to recording the "local" experience of Rutherford, New Jersey, and its environs.
