Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jesse Ball (born June 7 1978) is an American poet and novelist. He has published novels, volumes of poetry, short prose, and drawings. After attending public school, Jesse Ball attended Vassar College, where he studied literature, and poetry writing under both Eamon Grennan and Paul Kane. He decided in part to attend Vassar after attending a lecture at Irish House in NYC that Grennan had given on Kavanaugh. At Vassar, he took many courses in religion, and participated in a program visiting Greenhaven Prison. At this time he also won a travel fellowship to do photography in India. Following Vassar, Ball attended Columbia University, where he earned an MFA and met the eminent poet Richard Howard. Howard was to help the then 24-year-old poet publish his first volume, March Book, with Grove Press. At Columbia he worked with Lucie Brock-Broido, Liam Rector, Glyn Maxwell, Nicholas Christopher, Edward Hirsch, and Timothy Donnelly.
