QuotationReading W[illiam] C[arlos] Williams' Essays in the early morning - they are very informative. Back in the 30's I was trying for this kind of outlook and could not make it - had to get hung up in some kind of materialism instead. I was simply not ready for Doc Williams then and in any case I don't remember trying to read him. If I had. I would not have understood, I thought I was looking for Studs Lonigan or something (who remembers that I wonder?). Fine essay of W.C.W. on Gertrude Stein and what she was at.
