by Dr. Paul T.M. Jackson
Impressions is a small collection of traditional formal poetry by Dr. Paul T.M. Jackson, inspired by quiet moments and observations—whether they occurred while cycling through Provence, rambling in Wales, trekking through Galicia, hunting for castles in Corsica, or even on a pirogue in the Amazon. Jackson enjoys sharing these moments with his readers, and hopes these carefully crafted poems helps them find their own ‘poetic eye.’

He is a qualified teacher of religious education and has several years experience as a head of classics in the United Kingdom and as a teacher of literature in France.

He is associated with numerous professional societies and institutions and has enjoyed research stays, such as at the Fondation Hardt in Geneva.
His travel diary, A Greek Odyssey, was published in 2018 through Wanderlust, and his translation of Alexandre Dumas’ sprawling epic Isaac Laquedem will be later on in the year. His translations of French poetry have also recently appeared in Better than Starbucks.
