More About This Book

Overview

A Hill in Lunenburg is a collection of new poems by Richard A. Jones. These poems continue the irreverent, postmodern, ludic playfulness with language that Jones initiated in his previous volumes, Bippie Poems, Iowa Poems, and Black and White Coloring Book. Where there is much to snicker at in these poems, there is also a deeply philosophical and aesthetic subtext-with just enough political edge-that the poems bite. A Hill in Lunenburg takes a critically anxious look at what it means to live in America, New England, and Lunenburg, Massachusetts in the twenty first century.

Richard A. Jones taught mathematics and computer science at the high school and university levels. He holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Jones taught philosophy and logic at Howard University in Washington, D.C. for ten years. He has published three previous volumes of poetry, many journal articles, and his latest work of non-fiction The Black Book: Wittgenstein and Race was published last year. Jones is retired and lives with his wife of forty-two years, Carol, on a hill in Lunenburg, Massachusetts.
