Previous studies of William Carlos Williams have tended to look only for the literary echoes in his verse. According to Bram Dijkstra, the new movements in the visual arts during the 1920s affected Williams's work as much as, if not more than, the new writing of the period. Dijkstra catches the excitement of this period of revolutionary art, reveals the interactions between writers and painters, and shows in particular the specific and general impact this world had on Williams's early writings.

Industry Reviews

"Dijkstra has demonstrated beyond any doubt that Williams was enormously influenced by experimentation in the visual arts and that he attempted to emulate the Stieglitz group in focusing on the object itself, delineating it as precisely as possible and letting it represent the moment of perception without intruding personal comment."--Comparative Literature
