The Red Wheelbarrow and Other Poems

The Red Wheelbarrow and Other PoemsThe Red Wheelbarrow and Other Poems by William Carlos Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In 2015 at the Yale Writer's Conference in my Memoir Intensive group, Williams's granddaughter was also a member, working on a memoir of her grandfather. So I feel a more intimate connection with the great poet. One evening our group went to the beach house on the Sound of another member of the group, and it was pointed out that Williams had lived nearby.

This fine little book selects highlights from his works. He had a keen sense of attention to the world around him and a joyful use of words, most obvious in the title poem, which I remember discussing at length in some college class.
