William Carlos Williams

William Carlos Williams (1883 – 1963) was a Puerta Rican-American poet, playwright and novelist and was one of the leading figures of the Imagist movement. His famous dictum ‘No ideas but in things’ is reflected in canonical poems such as ‘The Red Wheelbarrow’ which look at an everyday object to see what it might mean. A 640-page Collected Poems was published by Vintage in 2013.
