Correct Spelling & Exact Meaning, The
Richard Jones

Richard Jones's seventh book is the work of an artist whose intense commitment to poetic craft is matched by his extraordinary capacity to witness and chronicle the details of domestic life, 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.

For Correct Spelling & Exact Meaning, The, Richard Jones

“Jones has mastered a poetic voice that is casual yet resonant, capable of swinging from ordinary events to metaphysical speculations and back again seemingly without effort.”—ForeWord

"Jones is nothing if not sincere, and his fluent free verse and glowing prose poems pursue some very traditional goals... [and] beauty and mystery are what he finds, commemorating parents and friends, contemplating the art of poetry, and celebrating his young children..."—Publishers Weekly

“Skillful, direct, and surprisingly delicate.”—The Village Voice

“A poet of uncommon perceptual gifts.”—Library Journal
