Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2000. First edition. Softcover. Uncorrected proof of this collection of lectures by Ashbery. An about good copy in wrappers with numerous corners of pages dog earred and some pen notations thoughout and some other wear. Somewhat uncommon in this format. This copy was owned by poet and reviewer Marie Ponsot (although no markings to show this) and she was the person who read it and made the notations.
