C. K. Williams is known for his daring formal style, which combines everyday observations with long, Whitmanesque lines. He has authored ten books of poetry, including Collected Poems (2006); The Singing (2003), winner of the National Book Award; Repair (2003), winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Award; and Flesh and Blood (1987), winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. Williams has also published translations of Sophocles, Euripides, and poems of Francis Ponge, among others. His honors include awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Twentieth Annual Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, an honor given to an American poet in recognition of extraordinary accomplishment.
