Auden and has carried off every major literary prize. His startling work alternately (and sometimes simultaneously) playful and recondite, affirms poetry's power to astonish and tackle fundamentals. Drawn from the work he published up to 1984, from the spare, beautiful lyrics of "Some Trees" and the disjunctive, experimentalism of "The Tennis Court Oath", to the powerful mediations on subjectivity of "Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror" and "A Wave", this collection makes a wide range of this poet's writing available.Hide synopsis

Ashbery is the most respected living poet (as of october of '08) but I don't particularly like him. He is highly influenced by the surrealists, apparently, and his poems have no logical flow, which I find maddening. That being said, he is not unpleasant per se because his use of language is fun and he has a sense of humor. Also, the book is formatted just fine, with a generous selection of his poems and index of titles.
