John Ashbery And English Poetry. A study of how we should read one of America's most important poets. Ben Hickman argues that we must attend to Ashbery's radical conception of reading if we are to understand the originality of his writing. His study focuses on Ashbery's reading of English poets, including Andrew Marvell, John Donne, William Wordsworth, John Clare, T. S. Eliot and W. H. Auden, and examines Ashbery's writing in terms of an 'aesthetic of inattention'. Hickman critiques the Americanisation of Ashbery's work as well as common assumptions about his Romanticism, his avant-garde Modernism and his engagement with the historical present. He demonstrates that Ashbery's generosity as a writer is closely tied to his generosity, inattention and situatedness as a reader.

We Are Many We Are One. "Space and geography, demographics and culture are less and less relevant. It is no longer about where people are born or where they live. It is more about who they are, how they see themselves, and with whom they choose to identify. This new world is as much about how we choose to identify ourselves, how we define our own priorities, and who we ourselves choose as our cohort as it is about where we physically work, play or worship. “The uniqueness of Tribal Analytics is that it ‘segments’ the population based on self-identified tribal affinities — shared values, life philosophies and outlooks. In doing so, it transcends demographics and other category-specific attitudes and behaviors that would be the basis of a traditional market segmentation study. Along the way, be prepared to see your own family and friends in a completely new way. You will meet the Persistents, the Outsiders, the Creatives, The One True Path, the Land of the Free. Find out who you, your customers, your target voters, and your neighbors really are."--Online blurb.
