Hotel Lautréamont Poems John Ashbery FOR PIERRE Contents Publisher’s Note Light Turnouts And Forgetting The Large Studio The Garden of False Civility Autumn.

Hotel Lautréamont is a 1992 poetry collection by the American writer John Ashbery. The title comes from the symbolist poet Comte de Lautréamont. At the precise point at which the reader might trust a poetic world or style, the poem changes gear.

Hotel Lautramont - by John Ashbery. 1 Children twist hula-hoops, imagining a door to the outside. They didn’t just happen  . Children twist hula-hoops, imagining a door to the outside. If we tried to leave, would being naked help us? And what of older, lighter concerns? What of the river? Children twist hula-hoops, imagining a door to the outside, when all we think of is how much we can carry with us. And what of older, lighter concerns? What of the river? All the behemoths have filed through the maze of time. When all we think of is how much we can carry with us small wonder that those at home sit, nervous, by the unlit grate.

I tried each thing, only some were immortal and free.

Poems deal with transience, memory, manners, music, art, love, reverence, time, dreams, mortality, and the past

Ashbery is, it may be argued, the most imaginative, creative, wonderfully empathetic, and worldly poets writing. He brings Keats' concepts of Negative Capability to bear on our experience with each other, our feelings and self consciousness, and the sneaky unconscious, that wears its mask in the darkest of places. Although many of these poems deal with themes full of darkness and deep weight, like the ocean fathoms, they are composed of moments of lightness, love, and sheer whimsy. The reader is always slightly out of place at the start or end of a poem, but it allows a kind of subtle fog to spread through the mind like faraway birds: "Where are you? Where you are is the one thing I love, / yet it always escapes me, like the leaves in their lilacs, / too busy for just one answer, one rejoinder." His visions are cemented with mortar and Elmer's glue from the dreams and lost loves that we notice in the subway of our sleep but which we must sacrifice for bread and tea. His poems rustle the dreams of our musing cities and make the metropolis of experience fall like orange trees. I can't come close to describing it. Ashbery is brilliant.
This book will shatter and repair your imagination like fog made of glass.

This intriguing, surreal book of poems does not deserve the nasty treatment dished out by the (until now) sole reviewer of this book. I was appalled not just by the mean-spirited nature of the review but also by how strikingly different my impression of Hotel Lautreamont is. It is as though we read two different books. Whatever grudge the earlier reviewer is obviously harboring toward Mr. Ashbery, please do not let this pedantic vocabulary fetishist deter you from a truly rewarding experience.

PS: The uninformed slur on General Grant is worthy of a duel!
