Description:
First paperback edition of The Collected Poems of Frank O'Hara. Clean used copy in good+ condition, no shelf wear. Spine intact. No markings. Collection reflects the poet's growth as an artist from the earliest experimental verses he began writing in the late 1940s to the years before his accidental death at forty, when his poems became increasingly individual and reflective. Frank O'Hara (1926-1966) was a leader of the "New York School" of poets, a group that included John Ashbery, Barbara Guest, Kenneth Koch, and James Schuyler. O'Hara's poetry was engaged with the worlds of music, dance, and painting. From these associations he devised an idea of poetic form that allowed the inclusion of many kinds of events, including everyday conversations and notes about New York advertising signs. Since his death in 1966 at age forty, the depth and richness of his achievements as a poet and art critic have been recognized by an international audience.

Description:
Poetry by French-born American poet in which an anachronistic narrative of transatlantic memoir, nostalgia and a Euro-American sensibility is forged out of attempts to fashion a convergence of poetic genres and forms – such as the epic of contemporaneity, the lyric of experience and elegiac allusion - through the use of classical rhetorical instruments of apostrophe, imprecation and synecdoche, shaped by the historical imagination.
