William Carlos Williams  was a Puerto Rican-American[1] poet, writer, and physician closely associated with modernism and imagism

The poet and critic Randall Jarrell stated of Williams’s poetry,

“William Carlos Williams is as magically observant and mimetic as a good novelist. He reproduces the details of what he sees with surprising freshness, clarity, and economy; and he sees just as extraordinarily, sometimes, the forms of this earth, the spirit moving behind the letters. His quick transparent lines have the nervous and contracted strength, move as jerkily and intently as a bird.”
