He is known as the founder of The Jargon Society, which has published poetry, experimental fiction, photography, and folk art since 1951 ... Associated with the Black Mountain poets, Williams was inspired by the visual arts, music, and the natural world; he experimented with found poetry and at times illustrated his work. His interests included civil rights, Appalachia and the Appalachian Trail, folk arts, and avant-garde poetry" (Verdant Press). Buffalo, Kent State and Kansas only in OCLC. Item #61682
