On September 17, 1883, William Carlos Williams was born in Rutherford, New Jersey. He began writing poetry while a student at Horace Mann High School, at which time he made the decision to become both a writer and a doctor. He received his MD from the University of Pennsylvania, where he met and befriended Ezra Pound .

Pound became a great influence on his writing, and in 1913 arranged for the London publication of Williams's second collection, The Tempers . Returning to Rutherford, where he sustained his medical practice throughout his life, Williams began publishing in small magazines and embarked on a prolific career as a poet, novelist, essayist, and playwright.

Following Pound, he was one of the principal poets of the Imagist movement, though as time went on, he began to increasingly disagree with the values put forth in the work of Pound and especially Eliot , who he felt were too attached to European culture and traditions. Continuing to experiment with new techniques of meter and lineation, Williams sought to invent an entirely fresh—and singularly American—poetic, whose subject matter was centered on the everyday circumstances of life and the lives of common people.

W e stood on the castle ramparts, pointing our cameras at one another. There was nothing to say. Waves pounded and churned against the seawall below; the fishing boats pitched sideways as they set out beneath somber skies. A blanket of clouds stretched toward the horizon, sitting low over an ocean that looked like freshly poured cement.

The grayness of sea and sky matched our mood. Just a few minutes before, our tour group had descended the long, dimly lit passageway into the underbelly of Ghana’s Cape Coast Castle , to the dungeons through which countless thousands of male slaves had once passed. The damp darkness, the memory of the evils committed in those cramped quarters, weighed heavily upon us. When we ascended again into the courtyard, the fresh sea air felt impossibly light. We circled the flagstones like gulls.

It was a sobering introduction to Ghana , whose slave-trading past has left an indelible mark on both sides of the Atlantic: helping to build the wealth of the New World while rupturing kinship ties across Africa and robbing the continent of perhaps more than 20 million of its sons and daughters. Yet while slavery is a solemn reference point for the country itself, it has become a springboard for tourists to this West African nation, who come not only to steep themselves in the sins of the past but also to explore one of the continent’s most welcoming countries — a friendly, free-spirited nation blessed with more than 300 miles of tropical coastline stretching along the Gulf of Guinea.
