These writings, together with Dr. Robert Coles's enthusiastic appraisal of teaching Williams and Dr. William Eric Williams's personal and touching filial account, "My Father, the Doctor," make up an intriguing and timely study of the poet as a physician of rare humanity and self-knowledge. As Coles suggests, Dr. Williams's writing can help many others take a knowing look at the medical profession.
Robert Coles (1929- ) graduated from Harvard College in 1950 with a degree in English Literature. Although he originally intended to pursue literature further, William Carlos Williams persuaded him to go into medicine. He is currently a child psychiatrist and a professor at Harvard University.
