"From 'The Skaters' (1966) to 'A Wave' (1984), John Ashbery has produced a remarkable series of longer poems. But perhaps none is quite so various, so beautiful, and so new as "Flow Chart," a very long poem that recalls Wordsworth's 'Prelude.'"--Marjorie Perloff," The New York Times Book Review""This is what real achievement in a contemporary poet consists of: he has laid down guidelines and made his mark on the language of the tribe."--John Bayley, "The New York Review of Books""Flow Chart, Ashbery's magnum opus, is . . . the fullest demonstration to date of this poet's fascination with what Walter Pater described as 'that strange, perpetual weaving and unweaving of ourselves.' . . . [Ashbery] is likely to be seen as the defining voice of his nation and time."--Robert Crawford, "Poetry Review (U.K.)""Flow Chart" is Ashbery at his most robust and determined."--"Library Journal"
