D.G. Jones (January 1, 1929 - March 6, 2016)

The poet, editor and translator D.G. Jones has died.

above/ground press produced his chapbook, standard pose (2002), which was reprinted in its entirety in Ground rules: the best of the second decade of above/ground press 2003-2013 (Chaudiere Books, 2013). Since then, he'd a new poem in the “Tuesday poem” series, and further new poems in two different issues of the small poetry journal Touch the Donkey: two poems in #3 (October 2014) and a single poem in #6 (July 2015). He declined to be interviewed.
