Poetry. Richard Jackson's 10th collection of poems, RESONANCE, juxtaposes love and loss, often setting a transcending hope against individual tragedies in various world conflicts, or letting images drawn from science collide against our deepest emotions, to capture the conflicting, sometimes simultaneous joys and griefs of being human. Drawing deeply from contemporary American life and from the ancient myths of Western culture, Jackson's words are sure to resonate with every reader. About RESONANCE in particular, and about Richard Jackson's work as a whole, James Tate puts it best: "Richard Jackson has become one of our most important poets. His subjects are those for which poetry originally came into being. The essentials are his songs, his precepts, his adoration, his companions. It isn't any simple solace he offers, but it's solace nonetheless that he lends us."

Richard Jackson's "Resonance" is a book that ignites our intellectual and emotional capacities. Jackson reaches his hand into the depths of the human being and offers us his findings. The book is ripe with philosophical inquiries, emotional investigations and self evaluations.

A writing professor of mine once asked, "Is it possible to write anything original or new about the moon or the stars?" Many of us answered that it is very difficult to write about the moon or the stars without being victim to cliché. In "Resonance", Jackson is very much concerned about the universe and our place in it. He goes to great lengths to suggest meanings as to how we connect with this universe. And he skillfully uses the overused Moon and Stars at his advantage: he deconstructs them and repeatedly redefines them in exciting ways.

In his poem, "Letter While Driving Towards the Apocalypse" he writes:

...That was
not a wrong turn. I know exactly where I'm going. But
it's the end of the world for them. Above them are
sharp shooters disguised as stars. The shelled trees rise
like spires. The moon seems trapped between cypress trees.
These images fall like loaded dice. (92)

Each poem is an existential journey. The structure of these poems are largely in prose paragraph form. This is a wise choice because it allows the poems to shoot off into new places at an instant. He can go off into vast tangents but at the same time stay connected with the underlying theme of the book.

One could go far enough and say that this book is about Love. Love of all kinds. And Love is a complicated thing: it can bring happiness and suffering. Jackson wrestles with this duality throughout the book. In his poem "Night Sky":

Sometimes we have to hold hands with our own nightmares.
When I tell you that the voice of a nightingale turns dark
you have to understand what this love is trying to overcome,
you have to know that if you ever leave, if you ever disappear,
the sky would rip, and the stars would lose their way. (8-9)

Further, in "Write Your Name in the Space Provided":

...Every love is terrifying.
It's always a savage solar storm that creates the Northern Lights.
But today, today opens like a wound, and you are there.
And you would be wrong to think that when I reach
inside you I do not find the petals of your soul. You would be
wrong to think I wouldn't die for you on any given day. (11)

"Resonance" creates its own universe and Jackson begs us to use the heart as a telescope in order to see into it. This book is an emotive force; it is not simply reading a book of poetry, it's feeling a book of poetry. Jackson isn't afraid to reveal the terror of being human, rather, he embraces it. He embraces it in order to strengthen his love, not only for the universe and his fellow man, but for the written word.

"It's the combination of soulfulness, intellectual rigor, and a courtly, almost Petrarchian ardor for the beloved that has always fueled Richard Jackson's poetry. They are also poems of dazzling associative vigor--funny, elegic, and political by turns. I wish that more of our poets possessed his big heart and breadth, and RESONANCE is his best collection yet. "

-- David Wojahn

"It's true. Richard Jackson's underground river beneath the Nile is six times bigger. Many small rivers joined it (him) and empowered his voice. Yes, he does this to his peers. You, tender, wise, wounded, generous and responsible child, your melody is unmistakably only yours. Have you eaten us? Do we flow too?"

-- Tomaz Šalamun

"Richard Jackson has become one of our most important poets. His subjects are those for which poetry originally came into being, The essentials are his songs, his precepts, his adoration, his companions. It isn't any simple solace he offers, but it's solace nonetheless that he lends us."

-- James Tate

"What you find in Richard Jaclson's great heart and spirit is poetry of generosity and fearless attention you won't find anywhere else. RESONANCE stops me in my tracks, it shifts my brainwaves around."

-- Dara Wier

PREVIOUS PRAISE FOR JACKSON'S WORK

"t's range of control, in its rich, ruminating prosody, in its capacity to contain all that it imagines, and especially in its power to place the corruptions of the world against those of the heart, it represents a poetry of scale, in fine yet compelling excess, informed "indeed exalted" by intelligence, irony, vision."

-- Stanley Plumly

"I think he is either the god Hermes or a sparrow. He is certainly a messenger. And what he says is contained in a single word, although it comes out as amazement, anger, joy, sadness, in an astounding cascade of images, and in a variety of tongues. He is a poet of great sweep and vision. He is deeply tender. He is a master of music; one of our finest poets."

-- Gerald Stern

If you like widely accessible yet deep poetry, then read this writer. Or, if you like Miklos Radnoti or Casare Pavese then you might like Richard Jackson. If you like love poetry, you might dig this book. If you like love poems without too much flowery mush, then poems in this book are up your alley. If you're into reading poems that are not cryptic, too personal, or dreadfully high brow, _Resonance_ is worth a read. The intellectual content is all there, don't get me wrong, but the poems are totally down to earth. Hell, politics, geography, biology, mythology, history, engineering, even, botany, math, and philosophy weave throughout the book. It's written in such a readable way.
