Collected poems, 1956-1987 by John Ashbery( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With this volume The Library of America inaugurates a collected edition of the works of America's preeminent living poet. Long associated with the New York School that came to the fore in the 1950s, John Ashbery has charted a profoundly original course that has opened up pathways for subsequent generations of poets. At once hermetic and exuberantly curious, meditative and unnervingly funny, dreamlike and steeped in everyday realities, alive to every nuance of American speech, these are poems that constantly discover new worlds within language and its unexpected permutations. As the poet David Shapiro has written, "The poems of Ashbery may seem so open that they become, like Hamlet, that rare inexhaustible thing, the irreducible fact of great art." This first volume of the collected Ashbery includes the texts of his first twelve books: Some Trees (1956), selected by W.H. Auden for the Yale Younger Poets; The Tennis Court Oath (1962); Rivers and Mountains (1966); The Double Dream of Spring (1970); Three Poems (1972), saluted by John Hollander as "a meditational masterpiece"; The Vermont Notebook (1975), presented with the original art by Joe Brainard; Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror (which won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1976); Houseboat Days (1977); As We Know (1979); Shadow Train (1981); A Wave (1984); and April Galleons (1987). In addition it presents an unprecedented gathering of more than 60 previously uncollected poems written over a period of four decades. To read Ashbery's work in sequence is to marvel at his refusal to rest on what has already been accomplished, his insistence on constantly renewed modes of expression. It is to become aware as well of the way his poetry chronicles life as really lived--"the way things have of enfolding / When your attention is distracted for a moment"--Amid the surfaces of the quotidian (waking, dreamt, imagined, remembered) and the equally pervasive, equally elusive and deceptive surfaces of language. Through all his metamorphoses he has continued to work with incomparable freedom and humor: Ashbery (in the words of James Longenbach) "is constitutionally incapable of narrowing the possibilities for poetry."--Jacket

First edition of the song cycle that O'Hara called "The quarrel sonata", first performed in 1955. These four art songs follow the rise and fall of a modern romantic relationship, from the first meeting on a Brooklyn-bound subway to the final breakup. The music is a formless genre or a combination of concert cantata, staged opera and vandeville

The sonnets by Ted Berrigan( Book )

2 editions published between 1964 and 1982 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in 1964, The Sonnets by Ted Berrigan is considered by many to be his most important and influential book. This new annotated edition, with an introduction by Alice Notley, includes seven previously uncollected works. Like Shakespeare's sonnets, Berrigan's poems involve friendship and love triangles, but while the former happen chronologically, Berrigan's happen in the moment, with the story buried beneath a surface of names, repetitions, and fragmented experience. Reflecting the new American sensibilities of the 1960s as well as timeless poetic themes, The Sonnets is both eclectic and classical - the poems are monumental riddles worth contemplating."--Jacket
