One never knows where they are (going) in an Ashbery poem.
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 27 years ago
_Three Poems_ is a journey of language itself; no destination of intention or meaning. One experiences a transparency--no mediation of form--of emotional states. These Ashbery poems are linguistic potential, potentially linguistic . . . nothing ever actualized by "saying". Ashbery circumambulates the thresholds of silence to collapse a medium shown to be inadequate to its content. It is this particular work that forced critical theories such as Deconstruction. These poems are not texts . . . the best "language poetry" since Stein's _Tender Buttons_.
