America's arch-modernist and a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, John Ashbery was also a masterful translator, particularly of French avant-garde poetry. Spanning his career—and essentially chronicling how modernism emerged in literature—this anthology includes 171 poems by such figures as Charles Baudelaire, Stéphane Mallarmé, Max Jacob, Pierre Reverdy, Paul Éluard, and Yves Bonnefoy. Arthur Rimbaud is represented by a selection from his Illuminations, while Ashbery's translations of Pierre Martory's The Landscapist—a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award—are also included.
