About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
I'm a fan of different kinds of poetry, but I'm especially partial to the Beats: Kerouac, Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti. Williams recaptures some of that feel. His work is meant to be read aloud, spoken word that creates a synergy from reader to listener. His work has a beat of its own. It is easy to understand his rhythm and wonderful to be lost in his words.
The individual poems are often romantic, sometimes haunting, and occasionally unsettling. It would take more room than I have here to discuss them in any depth. I'll just say that Williams works on several levels, and I appreciate She more with each reading.
Thankfully, an audio CD is included with She. On it, Williams reads excerpts of his own work, so you can hear the poetry in the author's own voice, in his own style. It is invaluable to helping the reader understand Williams beyond the words on the page. But once the reader hears Williams, that soft, resonating voice will stay in the mind, whispering from the pages and guiding the reader from poem to poem.
If you love poetry, whether or not you are a fan of spoken word poetry, you must pick up this book. I count my copy among my most cherished volumes.

Williams really writes in a way that allows you to slow down your life. It's not an "easy" read, but it does what poetry is supposed to do: incites thought and feeling.Published on March 6, 2014 by raysv
