Description - John Ashbery: Collected Poems 1991-2000 by John Ashbery

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 rhythms of American speech.

Buy John Ashbery: Collected Poems 1991-2000 by John Ashbery from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
