The Descent of Winter

As I passingly mentioned in an earlier post, over the next couple of months I'll be sequentially posting the entries from William Carlos Williams' diaristic experiment The Descent of Winter, which was composed in autumn of 1927 and published a year later in Exile, Ezra Pound's literary magazine. It's a strange, uneven, often mundane, sometimes sublime sequence of prose and lyric pieces,
and I think it would be fun to follow it along as we in 2014 take another slide down the same seasonal declivity.

Hope you enjoy!
