Having touched the lives of countless persons within Connecticut and without, West Hartford resident and poet Bob Jacob's latest book of poetry, 'Perspective,' was nominated recently for two highly prestigious literary awards, the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.Published earlier this year, the book details Jacob's nine-years experience as a hospice volunteer. A lover and writer of poetry for decades, Jacob, 76, said he started writing the book's 62 poems, which he prefers to call 'loving words' instead of poems, while doing volunteer work at the Connecticut Hospice in Branford. There, Jacob reads poetry to the dying and their loved ones every other week and said the work is draining, but rewarding.
