Meditations in an Emergency
Meditations in an Emergency

Recommended by Josiah

Frank O'Hara was one of the great poets of the twentieth century and, along with such widely acclaimed writers as Denise Levertov, Allen Ginsberg, Robert Creeley, and Gary Snyder, a crucial contributor to what Donald Allen termed the New American Poetry, "which, by its vitality alone, became the dominant force in the American poetic tradition."

This collection is a reissue of a volume first published by Grove Press in 1957, and it demonstrates beauti­fully the flawless rhythm underlying O'Hara’s conviction that to write poetry, indeed to live, "you just go on your nerve."
