    Ashberry knows how to play with language without making language or the other things of the world mere toys Unlike Wallace Stevens, to whom he is often compared, Ashberry s poems are made of the world not made outside it in a sad, sneering, wintery suburban yard I love these early books for their echoes of Auden and their strange aesthetic that s already turned aged, like vintage cabinets or Soviet architecture Long live John Ashbery.

    This volume contains the first 5 Ashbery volumes, including Some Trees, The Tennis Court Oath, Rivers and Mountains, The Double Dream of Spring, and Three Poems Highly recommended as the basis of postmodern lyric poetry.

    Four stars rather than five only because the five early collections included in this volume are not uniformly at the same height of excellence Some Trees and The Double Dream of Spring are two of the best volumes of poetry published in English in the 20th Century.

    One of the best collections of poetry I ve ever read studied Complex yet simple Beautiful words turned poems turned spirituality John Ashbery may be the greatest poet alive today.
