Review:

Of this excellent work, Marjorie Perloff writes: "Literary echoes, puns, paragrams, and mini-narratives collide so as to create the image of a world bursting with memories and overflowing with possibilities--a world like no one else's." John Ashbery, long admired for his wit, craft, and assured (if sometimes bewildered) tone, has outdone himself here. Notice especially the tour de force, "Eternity Sings the Blues."
