This collection of essays, the first to be dedicated to O'Hara in nearly two decades, asks why O'Hara remains so important to twenty-first-century readers and writers of poetry. The book is transatlantic in tone, combining American scholarship with a wide sampling of British writers. For many, O'Hara's distinctive appeal depends on his witty depictions of urban experience, his relationship to the painters of Abstract Expressionism and the exhilarating immediacy of his poetic voice. Yet these chatty and approachable qualities coexist with testing engagement with currents in European and American modernism. Frank O'Hara Now offers a comprehensive picture of the poet, presenting, the conversational insouciance of the writing alongside it more intransigent features." -- Publisher's description"@en ;
