Waiting For Rain In Boulder; Photo.
Expecting rain, the profile of a day
Wears its soul like a hat….
Frontispiece by John Ashbery, U.S. poet, critic
Ashbery characterizes himself as having been described as “a harebrained, homegrown surrealist whose poetry defies even the rules and logic of Surrealism.”
During the fall of 1963, Ashbery became acquainted with Andy Warhol at a scheduled poetry reading at the Literary Theatre in New York. That same year he reviewed Warhol’s Flowers exhibition at Galerie Illeana Sonnabend in Paris, describing Warhol’s visit to Paris as “the biggest transatlantic fuss since Oscar Wilde brought culture to Buffalo in the nineties.” Ashbery returned to New York near the end of 1965 and was welcomed with a large party at The Factory. He became close friends with poet Gerard Malanga, Warhol’s assistant, on whom he had an important influence as a poet.
