One of the pleasures of being alive is reading John Ash. Think of a prize-winning poet, someone you think of as a e: that's how good John Ash is and how well-known he should b. I first came across his work in the great Cliff Yates‘s great book of teaching poetry, Jumpstart, which contains a marvellous poem of faux-instructions of Ash: ‘Some Words of Advice: After Hesiod’.

Poems deal with such images as pastoral bliss, urban squalor, sexuality, and AIDS. Release Date: September 1991. Publisher: Random House Publishing Group. Weight: . 5 lbs. Dimensions: . " x . ".

John Ash’s poetry in The Burnt Pages is, among other things, a fascinating instance of what Professor Bloom has called the anxiety of influence. As an English poet living and working and drawing much of his imaginative sustenance from the United States, and from New York City in particular, John Ash represents an instance of influence that may be superficially considered unique. Historically speaking, the tide of influence has been considered to flow from east to west.

Maridor
John Ash wrote splendidly lyrical, engrossing travelogue-cum-historiography ("A Byzantine Journey"). However, his poetry, although quite original and wordsmith-worthy, too often leaves me feeling estranged: in his introspective, involute esotericism, he seems intent upon distancing himself.
Morlurne
I have read everything he has written with consistent satisfaction.He is original,engaging and a"deep" poet.
