Richard Jones part 1; With Respect 04/11/21

John’s guest this week is Richard Jones, a poet, a university professor of poetry and editor of a nationally known journal called Poetry East. They talk of his unique background, his close relationship with his father, a decorated US Air Force pilot during WWII, and his mother who was functionally deaf. He talks about the simplicity of poetry, how it is for all, not just the erudite specialists.
