Overview


Cultural Writing. Poetry. This volume collects critical essays on John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, Barbara Guest, James Schuyler, and Kenneth Koch; writers from the generation of New York School poets who emerged in the 1950s.

Coupling historicizing gestures and close reading, these critics account for complexities of gender, sexual identity, race, and even social debates about cinema and the climate of the Cold War" -- Thomas Fink.
