Williamsons poetry is clean, stark and direct. Colloquial observations in his life and the world around him, as well as ruminations on writing. His work is always significant in the way he moves poetry to make lyrical beauty with words. Williamson calls it big woman emotion. Big woman emotion is what we feel. Big woman emotion stirs the mind, ignites the loins, and conquers the soul. It brings forth life to all of us. Without big woman emotion, we suffer, such is life, we wither and we die on the vine. Williamsons work casts traditional prose to the wayside. His poems are naked and shaved with a contemporary edge and pulse, yet, his subjects are the same that the romantic poets from the past, celebrated and inked on paper under candle light, while drowning, in chalices of wine. ABOUT THE AUTHOR William Williamson is the author of SOME CAME FIRST, the recently published first novel of his Florida Keys trilogy.
