Hoops: Poems (Hardcover)

Hoops: Poems Cover Image
Special Order


Lush meditations by a poet whose previous book, "Leaving Saturn," was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist.
In "Hoops," Major Jackson continues to mine the solemn marvels of ordinary lives: a grandfather gardens in a tenement backyard; a teacher unconsciously renames her black students after French painters. The substance of Jackson's art is the representation of American citizens whose heroic endurance makes them remarkable and transcendent.
