Description

Possibly no modern American poem is more widely known than Williams's 'The Red Wheelbarrow, ' that tiny epiphany. Williams himself, not given to making high claims for his own work, considered this poem 'quite perfect.' If you look at the lingua franca of American poetry today--a colloquial free verse focused on visual description and meaningful anecdote--it seems clear that Williams is the twentieth-century poet who has done most to influence our very conception of what poetry should do, and how much it does not need to do.--Adam Kirsch
