MetadataShow full item record
Publishing William Carlos Williams: Selected Correspondence is a critical edition of William Carlos Williams’ communication with The Four Seas Company, which records the publishing of Al Que Quiere! (1917), Kora in Hell: Improvisations (1920), and Sour Grapes (1921); Richard Johns on starting the “little magazine”, Pagany: A Native Quarterly, as well as Williams publishing his novel, White Mule (1937); and The Cummington Press, publishing The Wedge (1944), The Clouds: Aigeltinger, Russia, &c (1948), and negotiations for printing the long poem, “Two Pendants: For the Ears”. The letters are mostly unpublished and are here provided with contextual and textual notes, restoring material previously censored or otherwise omitted. A historical and literary engagement with American Modernist culture, this edition explores Williams creating a distinctive voice and identity for American poetry, alongside an exploration of twentieth-century publishing of books and journals.
