Three Poems by John Ashbery

Worked in a prose as demanding and thus as fecund as verse, John Ashbery's Three Poems is a meditational masterpiece, calm in its encounters with minor fictions, desperate in pursuit of a supreme one. Its flutterings are those of the fledged Imagination, its difficulty, that of the Truth.

Three Poems, originally published in 1972, remains one of Ashbery's most idiosyncratic and important works.

This book is to other books what LSD is to table salt. And yes, those books include books of poetry, national defense, Vogue covers, Indonesian Home Cooking, STDs, and the collected works of Carl Jung. Patient reading will make your brain effervesce in a most pleasant way.
