Renowned poet William Carlos Williams and literary innovator Louis Zukofsky maintained a relationship through correspondence as both collaborators and friends between 1928 and 1963. Their letters have remained largely unpublished until now. Edited by Barry Ahearn, The Correspondence of William Carlos Williams and Louis Zukofsky chronicles the professional and personal relationship between Williams and Zukofsky as they present one another with criticism, suggestions and confidences that are at turns touching and astonishingly candid. In addition to delving into the creative processes of the two men, this exciting and extensive collection provides insight into such literary icons as Ezra Pound, E.E. Cummings, T.S. Eliot and Conrad Aiken. The analytical voice of Zukofsky and the experimental style of Williams radiate in these letters, creating a vivid and invaluable document of American literature. "This is quite simply an indispensable collection for anyone who cares about the daily life as well as the ethos of Modernist American poetics in the middle years of the century."-Marjorie Perloff, author of Wittgenstein's Ladder "The correspondence provides a cross section or X-ray of American culture in action during one of its most creative eras. Ahearn is a thorough and conscientious scholar, with an excellent knowledge of the period."-Hugh Witemeyer, Professor of English, University of New Mexico
