In addition to his works of poetry, Miller Williams’s books include literary criticism, translations, works on prosody, and anthologies of poetry and fiction. The list includes a history of American railroads (with James Alan McPherson), translations from the work of Nicanor Parra and Giuiseppe Belli, critical analyses on John Crowe Ransom and John Ciardi, and a standard reference on prosodics titled Patterns of Poetry: An Enclyclopedia of Forms (1986). He has also edited anthologies of poetry and has published many of his own poems, stories, critical essays, and translations in journals in the United States and abroad.
