9780811213073: Remembering William Carlos Williams (New Directions Paperbook Original, Ndp811)

A lifetime of memories, a lifetime of writing, a lifetime of publishing (since 1936) - what to do, how to say it, what is the organic form? If you are James Laughlin, founder and publisher of New Directions, poet and friend of poets, you adapt the narrative metric of one friend (Kenneth Rexoth) to tell the very personal stories of your other friends with verve, compassion, and a shrewd eye to the emotional truth of complex relationships. You call the whole memoir Byways, parts of which have begun to appear in literary journals. But one part stands alone in your affections. The section Remembering William Carlos Williams grows of its own accord and captures a relationship so perfectly that you decide to do it up as a little book and share it with a few friends who, like the late James Merrill, are enchanted. To reach a wider audience, Remembering William Carlos Williams is now available in this New Directions Paperbook Original edition.

About the Author:

James Laughlin, the publisher of New Directions books since 1936, is also a noted poet. In his lyrics and in his love poems he blends the spirit of the Latin poets with his own keen ear for the subtleties of colloquial speech. Beneath the wit of this poetry there are pungent truths about the human condition. His "Collected Poems" were published in 1994 by Moyer Bell.
Virginia Schendler has photographed inner-city school children, and has made portraits of writers and artists. In the semi-abstract color photographs of "Phantoms," she has sought to capture some of New York's own expression: the ironies and the humor, the complex and less-familiar provocations of older parts of the city.
