Pardon My Heart : Poems
by Marcus Jackson




Overview -
Winner of the 2019 Ohioana Book Award for Poetry

Pardon My Heart is an exploration of love in the contemporary African American ethos. In this lyrically complex collection, the speakers and subjects--the adult descendants of the Great Migration--reckon with past experiences and revelatory, hard-earned ideas about race and class.

With a compelling blend of narrative, musicality, and imagery, Jackson's poems span a multitude of scenes, landscapes, and sensations. Pardon My Heart examines intimacy, memory, grief, and festivity while seeking out new, reflective sectors within emotion and culture. By means of concise portraiture and sonic vibrancy, Jackson's poems ultimately express the urgency and pliability of the human soul.
