John Ashbery is an American poet who came into prominence in the mid-1970s through a book of poems titled after a painting by the Italian Mannerist master Parmagianino -- "Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror" -- a book which won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the National Critics Circle Award, one that also foreshadowed this American poet's perceptive and poetic view of the visual fine arts.

This book -- subtitled "Art Chronicles" -- collects Ashbery's numerous essays and newspaper
