Download and read online Roll Deep Poems in PDF and EPUB This breakthrough volume appropriates the vernacular notion of “rolling deep” to explore human intimacy and war. In his fourth collection, a breakthrough volume, Major Jackson appropriates the vernacular notion of “rolling deep” to capture the spirit of aesthetic travel that defines these forceful new poems and brazenly announces his steady accretion of literary and artistic influences, both formal and experimental—his “crew.” The confident and radiant poems in Roll Deep address a range of topics, most prominently human intimacy and war. And like his best work to date, these poems create new experiences with language owed to Jackson’s willingness to once again seek a rhythmic sound that expresses the unique realities of the twenty-first century with humor and understanding. Whether set in Nairobi, Madrid, or Greece, the poems are sensuously evocative and unapologetically with-it, in their effort to build community across borders of language and style. From Urban Renewal, “The Dadaab Suite”: I have come to Dadaab like an actor on a press release, unprepared for the drained faces of famine-fleeing refugees, my craft’s glamour dimmed by hundreds of infant graves, children whose lolling heads’ final drop landed on their mothers’ backs like soft stones. What beauty can I spell in this swelter of dust?

Publisher: W. W. Norton

Download and read online Holding Company in PDF and EPUB The ten-line poems in Major Jackson's Holding Company explore the prevailing power of art, literature, and music as a seductive and dark force in our lives. Beneath these poems is a raw, aching desire to grasp the eroticism of human intelligence and its occasional tragic outcomes, but not without celebrating the fervor of Eros and the carnality of the Dionysian spirit as fuel for the human imagination. In an effort to understand desire, beauty, and love as transient anodynes to metaphysical loneliness, Jackson invokes Constantine Cavafy, Pablo Neruda, Anna Akhmatova, Dante Rosetti. His expressiveness and high lyricism dignify human longing and passion in a reach towards a unique vision and music that is all his own.
