NY, Viking, (1972). A review copy of the hardcover issue of this important volume of three long interconnected prose poems, widely considered something of a modern masterpiece. Ashbery -- winner of the National Book Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and virtually every other award given out in this country for poetry -- is one of the most important American poets of the 20th century. Fine in a near fine, spine-faded dust jacket with a closed edge tear on the upper rear panel. Review slip and author photo laid in. An important book, and uncommon in an advance state. [#028141] SOLD
