About this title: 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.
