barrow on the
– Gavel K. Lindsay (copyright 2007)
This poem arrived by e-mail today.
Here’s what its author wrote along with it:
How about a mixed-genre William Carlos Williams variant? This one blends the novel by Erich Maria Remarque with Williams’ Red Wheelbarrow.
Erich Maria Remarque (1898-1970) is the author of the novel Im Westen nichts Neues (All Quiet on the Western Front), published in 1929, about World War I. The film classic All Quiet on the Western Front from 1930 is based on this novel.
American poet William Carlos Williams lived from 1883 to 1963.
As far as I can tell, these two writers have nothing in common.
