John Ashbery: Three Poems and A Wave

Nov 21, 1983

J. D. McClatchy introduces John Ashbery: “[his] poems reach for themselves and for their readers through vagrant sympathy and a kind of immediate contact. They wander back to their sources of power, then sidle up to us. We recognize their accent as our own, but hear, too, the finer accommodation of speech to that vision.” Ashbery reads from Three Poems and A Wave.
