New York School

Partying on Parnassus

Here is a 1998 review by John Simon of a book about the New York School of poets: John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, Frank O'Hara, and James Schuyler. I've read these poets sometimes with enjoyment, sometimes with frustration, and sometimes with disgust. Simon's assessment is not laudatory.
