Cubism, Stieglitz, and the Early Poetry of William Carlos Williams
by Bram Dijkstra
Publisher's Description
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. 'Georgia O'Keeffe's reaction when I told her in 1973 that I was starting a book on Stieglitz went from 'What for? Nobody who knew him could write about him' to 'Go ahead' because it would be fun for her to see what I had to say, and finally to her powerful instruction: 'Read Bram Dijkstra's [Cubism, Stieglitz, and the Early Poetry of William Carlos Williams]; it's the only book about Stieglitz worth reading.' I read it and agreed.'-Sue Davidson Lowe, author of Stieglitz: A Memoir/Biography
