9780060765309: Where Shall I Wander: New Poems

You meant more than life to me. I lived
through you not knowing, not knowing I
was living.
I learned that you called for me. I came to
where you were living, up a stair. There
was no one there.
No one to appreciate me. The legality of it
upset a chair. Many times to celebrate
we were called together and where
we had been there was nothing there,
nothing that is anywhere. We passed
obliquely,
leaving no stare. When the sun was done
muttering,
in an optimistic way, it was time to leave
that there.

-- from "The New Higher"

About the Author:

John Ashbery was born in Rochester, New York, in 1927. He is the author of more than twenty books of poetry, including Quick Question; Planisphere; Notes from the Air; A Worldly Country; Where Shall I Wander; and Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror, which received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the National Book Award. He lives in New York.

Review:

'Among the poets of the New York School, Ashbery has been the most influential in opening up new possibilities for the American lyric.' Helen Vendler, New Republic, 25th February 2005. '...vintage Ashbery. The ease and the seeming casualness of the voice works in direct opposition to the complexity of the message.' - The Economist, March 2005.
