Jonathan William Pratt
January 1, 1986 to February 13, 2009
Jonathan Pratt’s keen intellect and generous spirit shine brilliantly throughout this wonderful collection of his poetry. Despite the poet’s youth, his voice is always wise and steady as he shares his creative insights and musings. Some of my favorites among the selected – such as “Prove Paradox,” “Ghost Ship…,” “In Conclusion,” and many others – contain lines sure to linger and resonate long after you close the book. Poetry lovers are fortunate that he left this gift, this passionate legacy of verse, behind for us to enjoy.
