Description

"Jones can be stunning, effortlessly finding the right tone."--"The Village Voice"

Richard Jones examines the details of daily life as though through a child's eyes, taking in every wondrous moment as if time were nonexistent, yet with the intensely painful understanding that the elemental world of the family is fleeting. Jones, who is strongly influenced by Rilke and Keats, is a master of metaphor who can transform mundane things into sacred objects.

Richard Jones is the author of ten books of poetry and criticism and founding editor of the literary magazine "Poetry East." He teaches at DePaul University in Chicago.
