Who is john ashbery?

John Ashbery

John Lawrence Ashbery (born July 28, 1927) is an American poet. He has published more than twenty volumes of poetry and won nearly every major American award for poetry, including a Pulitzer Prize in 1976 for his collection Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror. Renowned for its postmodern complexity and opacity, Ashbery's work still proves controversial. Ashbery has stated that he wishes his work to be accessible to as many people as possible, and not to be a private dialogue with himself. At the same time, he once joked that some critics still view him as "a harebrained, homegrown surrealist whose poetry defies even the rules and logic of Surrealism."

Famous quotes containing the words john ashbery and/or ashbery:

    When the storm rattles my windowpane
    I’ll stay hunched at my desk, it will roar in vain
    For I’ll have plunged deep inside the thrill
    Of conjuring spring with the force of my will,
    Coaxing the sun from my heart, and building here
    Out of my fiery thoughts, a tepid atmosphere.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Another time I go outside
    Into the world. It rocks on and on.
    It was rocking before I saw it
    And is presumably doing so still.
    —John Ashbery (b. 1927)
