The Knife of the Times and Other Stories

Williams, William Carlos

"[The Knife of the Times] is all about people I knew in the town, portraits of people who were my friends. I was impressed by the picture of the times, depression years, the plight of the poor ... I wrote it down as I saw it. The times - that was the knife that was killing them." – 'I Wanted to Write a Poem'; signed by the author on the front free endpaper.
