Following important accomplishments in various long forms - notably the major poems that distinguished 'Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror' and 'As We Know' (both published by Carcanet), John Ashbery collects in 'Shadow Train' fifty poems of identical short length. Each sixteen-line poem touches on aspects of the recurring theme in his work, the contradictions and paradoxes of language and experience, and their strange lyric beauty. - Publisher.
