For Thursday (10/5)

For Thursday, let’s read some poetry by William Carlos Williams!  Let’s focus particularly on “To Elsie,” “This is just to say,” and “The Poor.”  Make at least three annotations on the Williams poems of your choice.

As you read Williams, think about the three criteria of “modernism” that we developed from our discussion of The Armory show: process, anti-tradition, difficulty/defamiliarization.
