A Wave: Poems

John Ashbery

First published in 1984 and now appearing in a new edition, A Wave is widely considered one of Ashbery’s finest books of poetry. The 44 pieces collected here—particularly the long title-poem—find the poet applying his uniquely lyric, meditative, and often hilarious sensibility to the mysterious and incessant curves and crests of love, art, thought, experience, and selfhood.
