Imaginary Logic

Imaginary Logic

Rodney Jones


a brand new assortment from a Kingsley Tufts Award–winning poet

Imaginary Logic is a brilliantly expansive, deeply meditative, and every now and then wildly innovative choice of poems that mixes Rodney Jones’s distinct storytelling skill, sharp social intelligence, and willing powers of commentary in a ebook that's wistful, satiric, audacious, and remorseless.
“The artwork of Heaven” opens with a parody of Dante and a down-home, twisted humor that Jones’s readers have come to depend upon: “In the center of my lifestyles I got here to a depressing wooden, / the odor of barbeque, childrens working within the yards. / no longer deep melancholy. This great hell of suburbs. / velocity bumps. the best way issues aren’t relatively paradise.”
Rodney Jones, winner of the nationwide publication Critics Circle Award, is considered one of America’s “best, such a lot beneficiant, and such a lot brilliantly readable poets” (Poetry). Imaginary Logic is the main eloquent expression but of his rigorous brain, scrupulous eye, and capacious heart.
