John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch. For the first time, "The New York Poets" gathers in a single volume the best work of four extraordinary poets: Frank O'Hara, John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, and James Schuyler.

He was grouped with the so called "New York School", a loose collection of modern poets with ties to the contemporary art and new music scenes in New York City. The group included his close friend Frank O'Hara, as well as Kenneth Koch, James Schuyler, and Barbara Guest. Though Ashbery thought the label was ridiculous-he lived in Paris, not. New York, from 1956 until the mid-1960s-it helped to raise his profile. In 1959, Ashbery viewed the original painting at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna

The poets of the New York School, as they were eventually known, were long on spontaneity and short on traditional literary effect. When Auden chose Ashbery’s first volume for the Yale Series of Younger Poets, he wrote O’Hara a thoughtful rejection, saying, I think you (and John, too, for that matter) must watch what is always the great danger with any ‘surrealistic’ style, namely of confusing authentic nonlogical relations which arouse wonder with accidental ones which arouse mere surprise and in the end.

For the first time, "The New York Poets" gathers in a single volume the best work of four extraordinary poets: Frank O'Hara, John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, and James Schuyler. By the early 1950s all four were settled in Manhattan, collaborating, competing and encouraging each other's radical experiments with language and form. Much of their work reflects their participation in the creative energies of the New York art scene, 'the floods of paint', to quote James Schuyler, 'in whose crashing surf we all scramble'. Believing that anything could be material for a poem, they transformed American poetry with their irreverent wit and daring. Mark Ford's anthology is an essential introduction to four poets whose work has influenced poetry around the world. It includes detailed background information and a substantial bibliography.
