Major Jackson is the author of three collections of poetry including Hoops, described by The New Yorker as “a layered metaphor, implying, among other things, basketball, jewelry, and life’s hurdles. Jackson seems to define himself by his eclecticism; he reveres basketball players as much as poets.” Jackson was awarded the Cave Canem Poetry Prize for his first book of poems.
