About As If Free:

"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
