Writing the Modern World: Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, and Science and Technology in the United States
March 1, 2021—July 16, 2021
Rebecca & Rick White Gallery, Lutnick Library
Curated by Charlotte Scott '21, from the collection of Alan Klein '81. Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) and William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) are two of the 20th century’s most exemplary American poets. In a moment of crisis and change, Williams and Stevens helped further the modernist poetry movement and craft a new American poetry. This exhibit focuses on the interactions and dialogue each man had with science and technology. Despite distinctions in the form and style of their work, both shared a common interest in responding to these changes and in creating a new poetry for a truly modern, and truly American, world.
