American poet William Carlos Williams born this day in 1883. A medical doctor by training, Williams “worked harder at being a writer than he did at being a physician” although he excelled at both. His poetry is strongly associated with imagism and modernism. He was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Pictures from Brueghel and Other Poems. You can read his poetry here:
