Synopsis: In the thirty years that John Ashbery has been writing his acclaimed poetry, he has also been one of America's most important art critics--first for the "Paris Herald Tribune," then as executive editor of "ARTnews," next as critic for "New York," and later for "Newsweek." "Reported Sightings" is a generously illustrated selection of his best writings on art. This rich volume covers the wide range of Ashbery's interests--including Surrealism, nineteenth-century French art, Abstract Expressionism, architecture, and design.
About the Author: John Ashbery has published more than twenty books of poetry, including Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror and Flow Chart, and is the winner of every major American poetry prize, the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Poetry Society of America’s Robert Frost Medal.
