Revered for his modernist and imagist poetry, he published numerous poetry collections, including the five-volume epic Paterson and Pictures from Brueghel and Other Poems. Williams won the first National Book Award for Poetry in 1950 for both Paterson: Book Three and Selected Poems, and in 1963 he was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Pictures from Brueghel and Other Poems. In addition to his writing, Williams had a lifelong career as a doctor practicing pediatrics and general medicine.
