The Tribe of John Ashbery and Contemporary Poetryby Susan M. Schultz
Synopses & Reviews
In this collection, fourteen essayists break new ground by focusing on a new generation of postmodern poets who are clearly indebted to John Ashbery's work. This concentration on Ashbery's influence on contemporary American poetry provides new methods for interpreting and understanding his poetic achievement.
Book News Annotation:
Contributors explore the poet's legacy while it is still being created in this collection of 14 essays focusing on the new generation of postmodern poets who are indebted to Ashbery's work. The emphasis is on Ashbery's work as context more than on his work as text. Essays discuss Ashbery as love poet, his later poetry, and his influence on writers including Ann Lauterbach and William Bronk.
