Books Acquired Recently: Mostly New York School Edition

I am taking a course on the New York School of poets this semester. Aside from a few books that I already own, these four books are assigned for the class:

Ashbery, John. 1985. Selected Poems. New York: Penguin Books, 1986.

—. They Knew What They Wanted: Poems & Collages. Edited by Mark Polizzotti. New York: Rizzoli Electa, 2018.

Mayer, Bernadette. Midwinter Day. 1982. New York: New Directions, 1999.

Notley, Alice. Disobedience. New York: Penguin Books, 2001.


Yao Xiao. Everything is Beautiful, and I’m Not Afraid: A Baopu Collection. Kansas City: Andrews McMeel, 2020.

This is a graphic novel by one of my new classmates! I just picked it up from my local bookshop today and look forward to reading it.
