Williams in the mail

Mail received the other day from Joe Milutis, who Skyped into my William Carlos Williams class to talk about Paterson and the work he’s been doing on the impressively audio-rich and intertextual blog New Jersey as an Impossible Object. I’ll be writing more about Milutis’s visit here soon; until then, I’m enjoying the curiosity of the Williams postage stamp in the context of our ongoing conversation about canonization, transmission, the epistolary elements of Williams’s own work, and the fact of Williams being stamped by our current time signature.
