The modern poem, modern society, and correct thinking

oktober 6, 2011

Brian Ang over William Carlos Williams:

“Williams’ subject is the modern poem: “I’m interested in the modern poem, because I’m interested in you!  And you are modern, you are alive now!  And those are the things that poems have better be made of!”  He insists the most important feature is measure, “that it isn’t the material… it is the way you use that material and integrate it with your line.”  He grounds his authority by an emphasis on the relation between the poem and modern society and by a rejection of the past:”  (op Jacket2)
