The collected poems of Frank O'Hara by Frank O'Hara( Book )

This collection brings together for the first time all of the poems that have so far been discovered -- more than five hundred (500) -- which Frank O'Hara wrote in his lifetime. They reflect his growth as an artist from the earliest dazzling, experimental versus that he began writing in the late 1940's to his last years, when his poems became awesomely individual and reflective. More than any other poet of the second half of the twentieth centure, O'Hara has left a mark on a whole generation of younger poets

47 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Important poems by the late New York poet published in The New American Poetry, Evergreen Review, Floating Bear and stranger places. Often this poet, strolling through the noisy splintered glare of a Manhattan noon, has paused at a sample Olivetti to type up thirty or forty lines of ruminations, or pondering more deeply has withdrawn to a darkened ware- or firehouse to limn his computed misunderstandings of the eternal questions of life, coexistence, and depth, while never forgetting to eat lunch, his favorite meal."--Jacket

In memory of my feelings : Frank O'Hara and American art by Russell Ferguson( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not only was Frank O'Hara (1926-1966) one of the most important American poets of his generation, he was also intimately involved with the art world of the 1950s and 1960s, a time when New York had become the cultural capital of the world. As an associate curator at the Museum of Modern Art, O'Hara organized a series of important exhibitions, notably the work of Franz Kline and of Robert Motherwell. In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art explores this key period in modern art by presenting artists who were associated with O'Hara and whose seminal works are reflected in his poetry." "Featuring over 80 works by twenty-three artists, the book focuses on works closely tied to specific poems by Frank O'Hara, notably Jasper Johns's In Memory of My Feelings - Frank O'Hara and Grace Hartigan's Oranges. Included here are direct collaborations between O'Hara and various artists such as Joe Brainard, Norman Bluhm, and Larry Rivers, as well as portraits of the poet by Elaine de Kooning and Alex Katz. Franz Kline, Alice Neel, and Joan Mitchell are some of the other artists highlighted." "The book is a re-examination of the relationship between art and poetry at this crucial moment in American art. It also offers new insights into the charismatic figure of Frank O'Hara and his world."--Jacket
