Contents of a Minute, Josephine Jacobson
Quarternote Chapbook Series #7
Contents of a Minute is a treasure of recently discovered and previously unpublished poetry. Written with the spare eloquence and freedom of mind Jacobsen was so well known for, this collection pays tribute to a woman ahead of her time.
Jacobsen devoted her life to literature. When she died at 94, she left behind a legacy of a dozen books and many honors, including position as Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress, the 1988 Lenore Marshall Award, the 1993 Shelley Memorial Award, and the 1997 Poetry Society of America's Robert Frost Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Poetry.
