Dale Jacobson is a poet of lyric praise and political vision. Like Tom McGrath, Jacobson’s late friend and mentor, he comes to his topics from growing up and working in the farms and canning factories of the great prairie of the northern mid-west. If there is a politics in his poetry as there is in McGrath’s, it is as spiritually suffused with nature as William Blake’s, as imagistic and allusively argued as Neruda’s, and as American as a coyote on a hilltop outside town waking us up with his lyrical, plaintive song.
