Hailed by the New York Times as one of the greatest poems of the twentieth century, 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 recreates the world. Spring and All contains some of Williams's best-known poetry, including Section I with its famous opening, "By the road to the contagious hospital," and Section XXII, where Williams penned his most renowned poem, "The Red Wheelbarrow."
