At Last We Enter Paradise
Richard Jones

Richard Jones's second collection is an ambitious, symphonic collection of poems on grief, loss, and human separateness. He develops rhythms of natural conversation and a relaxed tone, adding narrative and a sharp eye for detail, to produce a poetry rich with parable-like, aphoristic wisdom. Jones orders moments of mundane experience to reveal uncommon perception, going beneath the superficial to explore daily epiphanies that might otherwise be overlooked.
