Frank O’Hara

Frank O’Hara (1926 – 1966) was an important figure in the New York School of poets which also included John Ashbery. He created the idea of a poetic form that made room for all manner of events and experiences, including everyday conversations, and wanted collections such as Lunch Poems to capture the immediacy of the passing moment. A Selected Poems was published by Carcanet in 2005.
