Bone-Hollow, True

New and Selected Poems

Jack B. Bedell

Jack B. Bedell’s poems celebrate the people, traditions, and landscapes that have shaped him throughout his life. The poetry collected in Bone-Hollow, True represents over two decades of Bedell’s published work, all driven by an intense love of story and heritage. From first page to last, this book revels in the culture that makes south Louisiana, and Bedell’s poetry, so unique. At once contemplative and conversational, these poems consistently find the simple beauty of the world at hand, relying on the power of narrative to drive it home for all of us.

JACK B. BEDELL is Professor of English and coordinator of the programs in Creative Writing at Southeastern Louisiana University, where he also serves as editor of Louisiana Literature and director of Louisiana Literature Press. His most recent books are Call and Response and Come Rain, Come Shine, both with Texas Review Press.
