Alan Williamson artfully joins social and literary history with personal experience in The Pattern More Complicated, a collection of his very best poems over the last twenty years. A powerful section of new poems draws the whole work together in a kind of autobiographical novel, as in Eliot's phrase, from which the title is taken the pattern of dead and living grows more complicated with the years. Williamson's verse is a refreshing examples of how delicately the personal can intersect with the public in a love for the considered life. The Pattern More Complicated assembles Williamson's most important, representative poems, marking the trajectory of poetic development and the recurrence of themes across the span of four previous collections to present a survey of a major American poet in a single volume.
