A Worldly Country: New Poems - John Ashbery

John Ashbery is a talented poet. He has a mastery with language and his works are full of music and sharp images. All that said his poems don't resonate very well with me. His poetry is more abstract in topic and imagery, and less personal than I prefer. In the end I just happen to like a more emotional and revelatory style to my collections.
