Description

A bawdy, witty revelation by an award-winning poet who celebrates the soul of the South in jest and in elegy. Exulting within the drawl of his native Alabama, Rodney Jones’s poems play out the life cycle of the young southern white male, from high school football games to first debauchery, from lack of information to self-figuring out. Other poems speak of laying sewer pipe, of crows and sex, ink and raccoons, penises and perpetual motion machines. In many of those poems the southern drawl lives endlessly, riding at the tide of regional language, poking fun yet delighting in it. Jones dedicates other poems to poetry readings and English departments, to William Matthews, to Isaac Bashevis Singer, and to William Carlos Williams. His poems burst with wit, robust revel in, and earthy intelligence. Awarded the AWP writing prize by Elizabeth Bishop and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, Rodney Jones is likely one of the so much original poets in The us.
