Richard Jones

Throughout his career, Richard Jones has written from a luminous interiority, in deceptively simple, elegant language. His complex and intimate poems are spare, intentional models of clarity and restraint. Yet the formal quietness and the clear style belie neither the poetry’s soulfulness nor the poet’s intelligence; rather, such lucidity attains a kind of radiance.

Richard Jones’s books include Apropos of Nothing (Copper Canyon Press, 2006) and The Correct Spelling & Exact Meaning (Copper Canyon, 2010). His poems are published in such popular anthologies as Billy Collins’s Poetry 180 and Garrison Keillor’s Good Poems, and he has been heard on National Public Radio. His new and collected poems, The Blessing (Copper Canyon, 2000), received the Society of Midland Authors Award for poetry. For thirty years he has been editor of the literary journal Poetry East and its many anthologies, including Who Are the Rich and Where Do They Live?, Origins, Seasons, Snapshots, and Bliss. He is professor of English at DePaul University in Chicago.
