Trivia: Which of these is a famous poem by William Carlos Williams?
The Green Tractor
The Mourning Dove
The Red Wheelbarrow
The Sunflower Field
Correct Answer: The Red Wheelbarrow
So why is this answer correct? : At just 16 words, “The Red Wheelbarrow” is a surprisingly short yet prominent work in the world of 20th-century poetry. Known for its imagery, the poem reads: “So much depends upon, a red wheel barrow, glazed with rain water, beside the white chickens.” It first appeared in Williams’ 1923 collection “Spring and All,” where it was named “Number XXI.” Williams focused on colors to convey images in his lines, explaining that the four stanzas act as a “piece of cloth, stretched on a frame” — a canvas that he painted words onto.
