From the Paper:"Various social settings behind a literary piece set an interesting atmosphere for readers, but they are also deeply related to the central theme of the work. Poems written by C.K. Williams are no exception to this rule. Not only does the social context of Williams' poems play an important role for the delivery of main idea, but it is frequently a target of Williams' bitter criticism. Reading numerous poems of C.K. Williams, I was surprised by recurring social concepts in his works. Furthermore, I could observe Williams' fairly constant stance on the social issues he presents. Among many groups of poems with similar social contexts, the poems dealing with racism particularly interested me."
