The poetry of John Ashbery is sentimental and thoughtful, filled with reflections on life and death. This is a collection that earned him the Pulitzer Prize, as indeed he earned every major American Award for his work. The collection Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror has a well-earned name as the author unveils himself and his world to his readers in a series of reflections on the human condition as well as his own particular experiences.
