About the Author

John Ashbery was born in Rochester, New York, in 1927. He wrote more than twenty books of poetry, including Quick Question; Planisphere; Notes from the Air; A Worldly Country; Where Shall I Wander; and Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror, which received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the National Book Award. The winner of many prizes and awards, both nationally and internationally, he received the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation in 2011 and a National Humanities Medal, presented by President Obama at the White House, in 2012. Ashbery died in September 2017 at the age of ninety.

Reviews

"Ashbery helms a keen awareness of himself throughout...If he's repetitive, it's in the way that a beach is repetitive with sand, or the night sky is repetitive with stars."--Boston Phoenix
"Deeply pleasurable...Ashbery still has his ear to the ground, he's still listening, and the results are fun, funny, often wise, sometimes brilliant..."--BookForum
" [Ashbery's] productivity has done nothing to diminish his legendary inscrutability, not sap his notorious zest for playing havoc with nearly every convention and fixed idea about poetry under the sun."--Boston Globe
