Blues for Bill: A Tribute to William Matthews

Overview

Featuring a transcript of the never-before-published interview with William Matthews by David Wojahn and James Harms, this book celebrates the life and work of poet William Matthews through his own language, that of poetry. While poems of William Matthews are well known and remembered, this collection of poems ensures that the world will remember Bill himself: His graciousness, intelligence, knowledge, style, good humour, capacity for friendship, immense talent, and wit. In this anthology, the editors memorialise the character and soul of this most unique man. The poems included are written by people who knew Bill in a variety of ways, under myriad circumstances: as friend, both old and new; as mentor and teacher; as colleague; as father. Their poems are remarkable, true testaments to Bill and his art.
