Description of the book "Planisphere":
A new collection of poems from the beloved John Ashbery of the New York school, "America's greatest living poet".
For over 50 years John Ashbery has been one of America's most innovative and influential poets. Like Yeats and Milosz, Ashbery is that rare poet whose work continues to improve as he ages. Honed by experience and inexhaustibly creative, these never before published poems certify that Ashbery's artistic flame has continued to burn late into his life.
John Ashbery was born in Rochester, New York, in 1927. He earned degrees from Harvard and Columbia, and went to France as a PDF Fulbright Scholar in 1955, living there for much of the next decade. His many collections include Notes from the Air: Selected Later Poems (2007), which was awarded the International Griffin Poetry Prize. Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror (1975) won the three major American prizes-the Pulitzer, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award-and an early book, Some Trees (1956), was selected by W. H. Auden for the Yale Younger Poets Series.
The Library of America published the first volume of his collected poems in 2008. Active in various areas of the arts throughout his career, he has served as executive PDF editor of Art News and as art critic for New York magazine and Newsweek. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the America n Academy of Arts and Sciences, and he was a chancellor of the Academy of American Poets from 1988 to 1999. He has received two Guggenheim Fellow-ships and was a Mac Arthur Fellow from 1985 to 1990. His work has been translated into more than twenty-five languages. He lives in New York.
