The Wedge
Published: [Cummington, Mass.] : Cummington Press, 1944
Description: Williams rejected the foreign influence and illusions in contemporary American poetry. He was vehement in his opposition to the work of such poets as T.S. Elliot and Ezra Pound. Williams preferred to develop themes from American experiences, a concept he termed “the local.” In the introduction to The Wedge, he writes of socialism as an inevitable future development and as a necessity for true art to develop.
