Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "No poet is more surreal, more disjuctive and musical, more subtly allusive . . . than John Ashbery. In [this book] he is also tremendously funny. You don't have to understand these poems to love them; you need only that suspension of disbelief that constitutes an audience's pleasure before the magician's flourishes and wonders."--Michael Dirda,The Washington Post Book World "Underneath his genius for stylistic play sounds another, harder voice: its tones--intimate, edgy, ultimately heartbroken--reveal with great poignancy Mr. Ashbery's knowledge of the difference between writing and life."--Tom Sleigh,The New York Times Book Review.

Inhaltsangabe: Critics, scholars, students, and other readers of contemporary poetry have long appreciated Ashbery's uncanny mastery of the cadence and lyricism of colloquial speech, but they have been less sensitive to the equally important influences in his work of such "outsider" French poets as Arthur Rimbaud, Raymond Roussel, and Isidore Ducasse (a/k/a Count de Lautréamont). These sometimes overlooked presences are wonderfully alive in this collection of lyric poems, which first appeared in 1992. Now back in print, Hotel Lautréamont underscores Ashbery's ability to be both tragic and playful, dense and volatile, passionate and impersonal. As David Herd observed in New Statesman and Society, this is "a poetry fully and startlingly engaged with the way things happen."
About the Author: John Ashbery was born in Rochester, New York, in 1927 and educated at Harvard and Columbia Universities. He is Charles P. Stevenson, Jr., Professor of Language and Literature at Bard College and lives in New York City and Hudson, New York.
