William C Williams

William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) wrote stories, plays and autobiographies as well as poems. His most memorable achievement is probably his five books of poetry about the humble and downtrodden Northern New Jersey city of Peterson. Williams wrote the introduction for Ginsberg's "Howl and Other Poems" in the mid-fifties. He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1963, the year of his death.
