9780521431309: The Revolution in the Visual Arts and the Poetry of William Carlos Williams (Cambridge Studies in American Literature and Culture)

This book is a reassessment of the poetic achievement of William Carlos Williams in the light of the influence of such visual arts movements as Cubism, Dada, Futurism and Precisionism. The author argues that Williams essentially developed his concept of the modern poem by adopting the revolutionary ideas propagated by painters and theoreticians in the wake of Cezanne and the postimpressionists. A series of detailed interpretations of Williams' poems, embedded in the context of modern art in general, provides us with fresh insight into the work of one of the most important American poets of this century.

Book Description:

This book is a major step toward a fuller exploration of the connection between the visual arts and Williams' concept of the Modernist poem and of his achievement in transcending an art-for-art's-sake formalism to create poems that both reflect their own nature as a work of art and vividly evoke the world of which they are a part.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The formation of Modernist literature took place in a cultural climate characterised by an unprecedented collaboration between painters, sculptors, writers, musicians and critics on both sides of the Atlantic. Within this multifaceted movement, William Carlos Williams is a paradigmatic case of a writer whose work was the result of a successful attempt at integrating ideas and concepts from the revolutionary visual arts. This book is a major step toward a fuller exploration of the connection between the visual arts and Williams concept of the Modernist poem and of his achievement in transcending an art-for-art s-sake formalism to create poems which both reflect their own nature as a work of art and vividly evoke the world of that they are a part. As Williams repeatedly stressed, It must not be forgot that we smell, hear and see with words and words alone and that with a new language we smell, hear and see afresh.
