- William Carlos Williams, poems, iconicity
- As the initiator and representative poet of American modernism poetry in the 20th century, William Carlos Williams was good at dealing with the themes of daily life in his poems, which are characterized by concise form, colloquial rhythm, vivid image and strong visual effects. This paper attempts to use the principle of iconicity to interpret William Carlos Williams’ poems, in order to prove that linguistic symbols are vivid reflections of the objective world and human thinking.
