[William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)]
William Carlos Williams' birthday today, September 17. Let's see, he would be.. had he survived his strokes (and discovered some sort of mystery longevity drug!) - yes, 129! - Allen reading from Spring and All we have already posted - That may be accessed here - Those of you who follow this blog will know also that we are deep into the heart of a transcription of Allen's 1975 Naropa lectures on Williams - Mind, Mouth and Page. (Here, for example, is Allen's memorable observations on those plums!) - For a celebration today, we thought we'd draw your attention to this (audio only) - a WABD television interview, with a frail but still feisty Doc Williams a few days shy of his 78th birthday, (courtesy the invaluable PennSound).
