Summary

Praise for the print edition:
"...provides authoritative and relevant information...[an] impressive work...an engaging resource..."—American Reference Books Annual

The New York School started in the 1950s and was one of the most influential movements of American poetry—from the last half of the 20th century to today. In more than 400 entries, Encyclopedia of the New York School Poets, Second Edition is an encyclopedic A-to-Z reference to writers of the New York School, including John Ashbery, who is often considered America’s greatest living poet. This updated work is a compelling examination of this significant movement in literary history and its development through the years.

Coverage includes:

  • Central poets of the movement, including John Ashbery and Frank O'Hara
  • Major works—including poems, books of poems, and fiction—such as Ashbery's "Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror," which won the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Critics Circle Award, and National Book Award
  • Poets and artists who influenced the movement or were influenced by it, such as Andy Warhol, the Beat poets, W.H. Auden, and Robert Lowell
  • New York locales important to the movement, such as the Bowery Poetry Club, Brooklyn, the Chelsea Hotel, and the Nuyorican Poets Café
  • Magazines and journals
  • and more.
