Poetry. "Make no mistake about it: Burt Kimmelman appears here—& not for the first time—as a successor to the lineage of William Carlos Williams & George Oppen (to name but two), no less so for being a master of that lineage worn proudly. The sense of number in his writing—particle by particle & breath by breath—& the attention that he gives to other particulars—the littlest words & the small moments through which we live—are of a piece. In this there is nothing minor or modest, although it might appear to be just that, but a strict & powerful accounting, leaving me—for one—filled with admiration & hooked on every word"—Jerome Rothenberg.
