  • Praise for Frank O'Hara '... a remarkable new poetry - both modest and monumental, with something basically usable about it - not only for poets in search of a voice of their own but for the reader who turns to poetry as a last resort in trying to juggle the contradictory components of modern life into something like a liveable space.'
    John Ashbery
    'O'Hara's hip, glamorous, freewheeling self-celebrations both reflected and helped disseminate a new kind of confidence and daring in American poetry.' Mark Ford 'Wonderful, original poems... He was an essential contact-man between  the worlds of painting and poetry. And he suggested a rich and fascinating dialogue between them.' Eavan Boland
