Ripe by Roy Jacobstein

Issue #91
Fall 2003

Jane Hirshfield recommends Ripe, poems by Roy Jacobstein: "Roy Jacobstein’s Ripe, winner of the Felix Pollak Prize, is a book of balance, precision, vision, courage, and wit. Each poem feels solidly present in what it knows, each poem is fragrant with lived life—just as its title implies, here is a poet come into his ripeness." (Wisconsin)
