Abstract

William Carlos Williams succeeded and earned his fame by breaking the tradition in literature, forming his own unique writing style, that is, objectivism, which made him, became an extraordinary poet in American history. Williams’ three main characteristics of objectivism include seeking for expressing ideas in objective things, experiencing objects by senses, and taking advantages of skills used in western paintings. If teachers can guide students to apply this theory into analysis of Williams’ poems in American literature teaching, students would have a profound understanding about the poet and his poems from a new and interesting angle. This article puts forward a good example by choosing Williams’ six poems to analyze the objectivism embodied in them.
