By William Carlos Williams,Jonathan Cohen
The centennial variation of William Carlos Williams’s early ground-breaking quantity, containing a few of his best-loved poems
Published in 1917 by way of 4 Seas Press, Al Que Quiere! used to be William Carlos Williams’s 3rd poetry book—his leap forward volume—and includes a few of his best-loved poems (“Tract,” “Apology,” “El Hombre,” “Danse Russe,” “January Morning,” and “Smell!”), in addition to a Whitmanesque concluding lengthy poem, “The Wanderer,” that anticipates his epic masterpiece Paterson. Al Que Quiere! is the end result of an experimental interval for Williams that integrated his translations from Spanish. The Spanish epigraph of Al Que Quiere! is from the quick tale “El hombre que pareci´a un caballo” (“The guy Who Resembled a Horse”) via the Guatemalan writer Rafael Are´valo Marti´nez. This centennial version includes Williams’s translation of the tale (made with the aid of his father), in addition to a desirable bankruptcy from a e-book of conversations with Williams, I desired to Write a Poem, during which he reviews at the person poems.
