Ashbery’s poetry slips off the page so effortlessly that it seems unnatural at times. His work is at once influenced by almost everyone before and wholly original. Anyone looking to see the direction modern poetry is taking need look no further. The two pieces most worthy of note are “Melodic Trains” and “Daffy Duck in Hollywood.” ( )

I came late to Ashbery, as to Cecil Taylor; better late than never.
