Pictures from Brueghel and Other Poems
Pictures from Brueghel and Other Poems is a 1962 book of poems by the American modernist poet/writer William Carlos Williams. It was Williams's final book, for which he posthumously won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1963. Two previously-published collections of poetry are included: The Desert Music and Other Poems from 1954 and Journey to Love from 1955.
Pieter Brueghel the Elder was a Flemish painter (born circa 1525-1530, died 1569), famous for pictures of peasant life. This book opens with the title cycle of ten poems (the last poem is in three parts), each based on a Brueghel painting.
