His poems make you forget what poetry is. Bernlef's secret is in the way he looks at things. His attention to the ordinary, to the marginal, the so-called extra literary has not only enlarged the realm of the poetic but challenges the hierarchies and preconceived notions about what is or is not considered literary. -- Dutch critic Hans Kloos
I embrace the words like smoke light and carefree not because I love them but because they're in my way and no avoiding it. With my nose pressed against a word the typesetting comes loose and I get entangled in the moustaches and beards of words.
