John Ashbery

I've always found Ashbery to be more and more entertaining and meaningful the more and more I read his works. I think you have to learn how to read Ashbery, because he has a style all his own. I remember reading his poetry in high school and hating it at first because it was so frustrating to read. However, the long a spent reading, the more I liked his style. I hope that people will not give up on Ashbery after one or two reading, but give him the time he needs to be truly understood.

  1. You got to read Ashbery in high school? Nice.

    Is the brightest kind of maturity for us, right now at any rate."
