To celebrate John Ashbery's ninetieth birthday, the Library of America presents the second volume of his collected poems, spanning a crucial and prolific decade in the poet's life and work. Having received wide acclaim and numerous awards over the first half of his career, in the 1990s Ashbery continued to strike out in new directions, writing in a style that is at once playful and cerebral, relaxed and precise, dreamlike in its imagery and associations yet exquisitely attuned to the everyday rythyms of American speech. This volume opens with one of Ashbery's indispensable works, the book-length poem Flow Chart (1991), here for the first time in a complete text that restores 38 lines inadvertently omitted from all previous editions. Weaving a spell through its long lines, which unfold in mesmerizing and unexpected ways, Flow Chart offers an account of the poet's mind that complements Ashbery's earlier Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror. It also provides a vision of the collective odream of everyday life that was our / beginning, and where we still live, out in the open, under clouds stacked up in a holding pattern / like pictures in a nineteenth-century museum.o

Övrig information

America's preeminent living poet, John Ashbery (b. 1927) has long associated with the New York School that came to the fore in the 1950s. He has influenced generations of writers and his poems, dreamlike and steeped in everyday realities, alive to every nuance of American speech, have discovered new worlds within language. As the poet David Shapiro has written, they omay seem so open that they become, like Hamlet, that rare inexhaustible thing, the irreducible fact of great art.o Author Residence- Hudson, NY Author Hometown- New York City Mark Ford, editor, is the author of three acclaimed collections of poetry, Landlocked, Soft Sift, and Six Children; his Selected Poems was published in 2014.
