I would really like to know why is this man called a poet. I mean, writing some stupid sentences, that look one of those notes that we leave in the fridge does not make anyone a poet, in my opinion. "This is just to say, I'm say for eating the plums, etc,etc, etc", what is this? Where is its beauty? I tell you, Shakespeare, William Blake, Worthsworth and other real poets must be very angry in their tombs, knowing that William Carlos Williams and other clowns like him are being given the name "poets".

moonflower...Some poetry is cryptic or superficially puzzling. Does that negate its status as poetry? I mean let's be fair here, preference alone cannot be the determining factor of what is and what is not poetry. I do share your OPINION (and that it must remain) that Williams is not as fullfilling (one might say) as some of the poets yoe mentioned. This, however, is not some kind of objective statement and should not be used as one.

A poem is a poem if you call it one. WCW is in my opinion is a great poet. He writing is very clear and concise, and very subtly evocative. Just because he doesn't write in lofty sentences, and just because he isn't a romantic like some of the poets you mentioned in no way negates his status as a poet. I myself have never cared for Mozart. I'd much rather listen to Bach, Bethoven, or many more modern composers. This does not however mean that he is not good. Close-mindedness is a sure way to diminish ones enjoyment of art,
