THE ‘INSTANT MIX’ OF PERCEPTION IN THE POETRY OF THE NEW YORK SCHOOL

Posted On Feb 22 2017 by

“The poem is at last between two persons instead of two pages”, Frank O’Hara wrote in his 1959 poetry manifesto. Personism, the term he used to designate his vision on poetry, referred to the personal in a way that was not very different in essence from Eliot’s repudiation of it, but which can be seen as a counter reaction to the Confessional school that was emerging at about the same time.
