“Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror” was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, a National Book Award and the National Book Critics’ Circle Award. The long title poem, a meditation on Parmigianino’s famous self-portrait, has become Ashbery’s best-known poem. It is accompanied here by a number of shorter pieces – playful, witty, elusive. The collection remains one of the most significant poetic achievements of our time.
