Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub

In this collection, first published in 1987, John Ashbery--"one of his generation's most gifted and eloquent poets" (Michuko Kakutani, The New York Times)--offers some of his most intimate and direct poems. With breathtaking freshness, he writes of mutability, of the passage of time, and of growth, decay, and death as they are reflected in both ourselves and the changing of the seasons. By turns playful, melancholy, and mysterious, the poems in April Galleons reaffirm the extraordinary powers that have made Ashbery such a significant figure in the American literary landscape.
