    One thought on “Hotel Lautreamont”

    1. One of Ashbery s very best Plenty of hilarity and thwarted or provisional transcendence Baked Alaska is a particular favorite, but there are plenty of others For me it belongs on all three shelves at once read, to read, currently reading.

    2. Here is another great poet that I don t understand Jackson Pollock was good for about two years, but can you imagine him with a 50 year career Maybe I should go to college, or Paris, or Hell.
