Editorial Reviews

John Malclom Brinin
"In the pages of an art journal some years ago, John Ashbery wrote: "Most reckless things are beautiful in some way, and recklessness is what makes experimental art beautiful, just as religions are beautiful because of the strong possibilities that they are founded on nothing." Ashbery's own kind of recklessness takes the form of an austere refusal to honor any of the claims of sentiment, beauty and good conscience that poetry is supposed to make." Books of the Century, the New York Times, August, 1975
