>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?
I have it. I didn't search for it, it just came my way in the results of a different search. It is mostly about the old failures ebook rendering of poetry.
The NYT article:
Line by Line, E-Books Turn Poet-Friendly
Locus Solus: The New York School of Poets
News, links, resources, and commentary on poets and artists of the New York School
Digitizing John Ashbery, “Our T.S. Eliot, Our Gertrude Stein”
