When Willie Williams was growing up, he loved words and writing poetry. However, he needed a way to make a living, so he became a family doctor and practiced medicine for 40 years. All during that time, though, he never stopped writing. This is the story of William Carlos Williams– doctor, poet, and legend.
Great for middle and high school English class! I bought a copy for my own middle school classroom. WCW is studied, and it will be nice to have an additional resource for poetry units.
