Yesterday's NY Times on the cover but below the fold had an article about improvements in formatting poetry books for e-books. The article began and ended with references to Ashbery's work. The above quote comes from the last paragraph and is said by the president of the Poetry Foundation. Later I will try to find and post the link to the article for any interested members. But as a prelude I thought I would disseminate this quick e-mail. You can guess my response from my past posts and my articles: a simple test really--can anyone of the general public quote a memorable Ashbery line?
