William Walsh is a southern narrative poet in the tradition of James Dickey, David Bottoms, and Fred Chappell, whose most recent collection of poems, Lost In the White Ruins, was published in fall 2014. He is the author of five other books: Speak So I Shall Know Thee: Interviews with Southern Writers, The Ordinary Life of a Sculptor, The Conscience of My Other Being, Under the Rock Umbrella: Contemporary American Poets from 1951-1977, and David Bottoms: Critical Essays and Interviews.
It’s been said of this award-winning poet that he has “perfected the art of the run-on line, [which] demonstrates how the run-on forces the reader to entertain rival impressions at the same time.” As well, “his sense of loneliness comes across admirably as a Skeeter Davis song, [and] so does his obstinate faith in love. . . . Walsh seems to find redemption and comic-relief in his loses, like Arlo Guthrie’s self-portrait as the haphazard free-spirited protagonist. . . in his home-grown rough-hewn voice. Charging out of Walsh’s folksy chatter comes some locution as if grabbed quickly out of the Muse’s own inattentive hands. . . . Under all the masks and disguises, we are made aware that Walsh knows exactly who he is and what he is doing.”
His work has appeared in AWP Chronicle, Cimarron Review, Five Points, Flannery O’Connor Review, The Georgia Review, James Dickey Review, The Kenyon Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, North American Review, Poetry Daily, Poets & Writers, Rattle, Shenandoah, Slant, and Valparaiso Poetry Review. His interviews have been published in over fifty journals. They include, among others, Czeslaw Milosz, Joseph Brodsky, A.R. Ammons, Doris Betts, Pat Conroy, Harry Crews, James Dickey, Ariel Dorfman, Mark Doty, Rita Dove, Stephen Dunn, Eamon Grennan, Mary Hood, Edward Jones, Madison Jones, Donald Justice, Ursula Leguin, Andrew Lytle, Lee Smith, and Max Steele.
