William Carlos Williams was a revolutionary figure in American poetry. He was a major writer in the modernist movement, helping to create a clear American voice. Although Williams had a successful literary career as a poet, he lived a remarkably conventional life, working as a medical doctor for more than forty years. Early in his career, he briefly became involved in the Imagist movement through his friendships with Ezra Pound and H.D. Williams’s deep sense of humanity pervaded both his work in medicine and his writings. In 1915 Williams also began to associate with a group of New York artists and writers known as “The Others”. Founded by the poet Alfred Kreymborg and the artist Man Ray, this group included Wallace Stevens, Mina Loy, Marianne Moore and Marcel Duchamp. In his later years, Williams took on the role of elder statesman and mentored and influenced younger poets. He had an especially significant influence on many of the American literary movements of the 1950s, including the Beat movement, the San Francisco Renaissance, and the New York School. One of Williams’s most dynamic relationships was as a mentor to the young Allen Ginsberg. Williams included several of Ginsberg’s letters in Paterson, stating that one of them helped inspire the fifth section of that work. Williams also wrote the introduction to Ginsberg’s important first book, Howl. Williams was a highly acclaimed writer, two of his many honors include the first National Book Award for Poetry in 1950 and the Pulitzer Prize in 1963.
