Description or summary of the book: During his career John Ashbery has been hailed as the 'eminence grise' of postmodernism, championed by W.H. Auden and has carried off every major literary prize. His startling work alternately (and sometimes simultaneously) playful and recondite, affirms poetry's power to astonish and tackle fundamentals. Drawn from the work he published up to 1984, from the spare, beautiful lyrics of 'Some Trees' and the disjunctive, experimentalism of 'The Tennis Court Oath', to the powerful mediations on subjectivity of 'Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror' and 'A Wave', this collection makes a wide range of this poet's writing available.
