Poetry & Medicine, part I.
Tidbits about William Carlos Williams (1883-1963):
♦ A renowned writer, he was said to be a “doctor by day, poet by night.”
♦ He attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, was trained in family medicine and pediatrics, and served as the chief of pediatrics for 40 years at what is now St. Mary’s General Hospital in New Jersey.
♦ He painted during his early years, similar to his mother, who was a Paris-trained artist.
♦ As one closely associated with modernest poetry and imagism, he also had marked influence on the American literary movements of the 1950’s including the San Francisco Renaissance, the Beat movement, and the New York School.
♦ He is an inspiration to PuppyDoc.
