Praise for Selected Poems

“One feels in the textures of Williams's writing a pure conviction and a commitment to seeing a higher dimension to poetry. When Williams writes of educating the soul and of the spiritually transforming power of beauty, he is convincing. - Ian Tromp, Poetry on C. K. Williams” —Poetry on C. K. Williams
