Poetry. Originally from Manchester, England, John Ash currently lives in a small village outside Istanbul. In addition to being one of England's better-known poets, he is the author of one of the great travel books of our time, A Byzantine Journey (1995). In THE ANATOLIKON, Ash's deep knowledge of Byzantine and Ottoman cultures, as well as his daily life, informs poems that somehow still reflect his awareness of Western poetics and experimentation. Ash's poetry has appeared in the New Yorker, the New York Times, and the Paris Review.
