Even after half a century of amazing readers, John Ashbery continues to delight and challenge with his inventiveness. "Planisphere" takes the reader on a dizzying journey in the company of a virtuoso and sorcerer who makes the commonplace magical, disorientates and teases, and conjures glimpses of 'horizons - bright and anxious': 'a space like a dream'. "Planisphere" restores to us a sense of joy and unease at the untried possibilities of language and of the world we take for granted.

'Great poetry, as T.S. Eliot said, can communicate before it is understood: Ashbery communicates in a way that both pays homage to language and transcends it at the same time.' The Guardian 'Praised as a magical genius, cursed as an obscure joker, John Ashbery writes poetry like no one else.' The Independent
