"Williams’s next book, With Ignorance (1977), would introduce the innovation with which he was most associated. Though critics would see the influence of Walt Whitman in the long line that became Williams’s trademark, it was a formal strategy that he put to very different ends, “making room”, as he said, “for consciousness”, as well as continually renovating the poetic space that it opened up." Ahren Warner • Guardian "“I wasn’t a particularly intellectual kid,” he told the Los Angeles Times. “What I was, was a really bored kid. I read everything I could get my hands on.” He also grew to be 6-foot-5 and was recruited to Bucknell University in Pennsylvania to play basketball." Martin Weil • Washington Post
