Publisher's Summary

A beautiful facsimile of the 1923 original edition which is considered "one of the greatest poems of the twentieth century" by The New York Times.
Spring and All is a manifesto of the imagination - a hybrid of alternating sections of prose and free verse that coalesce in dramatic, energetic, and beautifully cryptic statements of how language re-creates the world.
Spring and All contains some of Williams' best-known poetry, including Section I, which opens, "By the road to the contagious hospital," and Section XXII, where Williams penned his most famous poem, "The Red Wheelbarrow". Now, almost 90 years since its first publication, New Directions publishes this facsimile of the original 1923 Contact Press edition, featuring a new introduction by C. D. Wright.

Great reading of a classic work

Sean Slater handles the material well. There needs to be more poetry in audio like this. Not over the top and fun to listen to. Get it, poetry fans.
