The Best American Poetry 2008 - John Ashbery
John Ashbery, from The Best American Poetry 2008 reading in NYC last week:
“Pavane pour Helen Twelvetrees”
John Ashbery reading “In the Book of the Disappearing Book” by John Gallaher
The poets reading at the 2008 BAP event also read another poem from the anthology, so imagine my surprise and honor when I saw this clip. I’ve been following Ashbery’s work with pleasure and excitement for well over 20 years. I’m so bouncy about this I can barely stand myself.
I must sit down now.
