Self-portrait in a Convex Mirror, Paperback Book


"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.
