About John Ashbery weight:
John Lawrence Ashbery is the name of a poet who, according to many of the critics, has made use of larger diversity of vocabulary in his poems than any American poets, including greats like Walt Whitman and Ezra Pound. The surrealist poet is has published more than a couple of dozen volumes of poetry among which Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror is the most admired.
The celebrated poet has received a number of awards and honors throughout his more than six and a half decade long career. Among those, the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry earned back in 1975 stands the most notable. He was awarded America Award in Literature in the year 2008. He has also been inducted into the New York Writers Hall of Fame and was bestowed the rank of Officer of the Legion of Honor by the French government.
Like most other poets and writers, John Ashbery hasn’t ever been very health-conscious. But the 87-year-old poet has maintained a decent fitness with no major health issues yet reported. He has always had an average body, neither bulky nor skinny. Not much is known about Ashbery’s diet, only known facts are that he doesn’t smoke and neither is he an alcoholic.
Ashbery has never been spotted having a walk along, jogging in the park, nor doing any kind of exercises. He also never talked on these matters. It seems unlikely that he does any kind of workout apart from anything that doctors prescribe to people of his age.
