Unlike most contemporary poets with a highly formulatedaesthetic, Jackson does not play the game of post-modernism, makingit clear from the start that poetry for him "is not a question hereof arguing that poems are only about language, as some languagepoets argue." Instead he has roots in Dante, Wordsworth, Petrarch(his last book, featuredsonnets in a contemporary mode). He admires Petrarch' s ("shifting style"), "language beyond language . . .always in the impossible position of trying to say something beyonditself." On one level then (the most important) the "essentialpower of language" is "as sound and as a physical thing as opposedto meaning and representation." This echoes, as Jackson points out,Wordsworth's notion of "words, not only as symbols, but as things,active and efficient," as well as a number of other well-knownformulations: Frost's "sentence sound" that "often says more thanthe words," Richard Hugo's "triggering town" whereby an image, aprompt, even the "sound of words" can carry "the poet and poem inunanticipated directions," and similarly Brodsky's "dictate oflanguage," which also "prompts, or simply dictates, the next line"and may surprise the poet with the poem's outcome. Jackson wants"an excess of associations through the play of language," "a richarray of possibilities, a kind of fluidity of meanings—though nottotally out of control since they are limited by the shape of thequilt."

Overall, findings suggested that the two groups of students were working toward separate goals: the international students' goal is academic writing in English ; the US-educated students' goal is academic writing in English. Despite these differences, there were practices on the part of the tutors that were either more effective or less effective for both groups of students. In other words, effective feedback practices worked for all students, and less effective feedback practices were generally ineffective for all students as well. Practices that facilitated the initiation, giving, or making use of oral feedback included (a) reading aloud, (b) providing specific, descriptive positive feedback, (c) using interactive signals, and (d) making links between talk and writing. Factors that constrained these processes were (a) limited oral proficiency, (b) over-reliance on reference materials, (c) form-based (as opposed to meaning-based) approaches to grammar, and (d) rushing to frame a problem as grammatical. Implications are suggested for providing oral feedback on second language writing, as well as for considering the role of language in writing.
