    DescriptionPoetry. Drama. Fiction. This book contains rare unpublished and out of print poems, a play, and an unfinished 'novel', all written in collaboration in the early 1960's. HYMNS comprises the full run of poetry and prose the two poets wrote in collaboration between 1960 and 1964. Two-thirds of these have never before appeared in book form. Berkson's and O'Hara's "hymns," inspired by the crooked steeple of the Church of St. Bridget on New York's Lower East Side, address themes of love, protestation, travel and more. (The final two are songs in praise of the New York School master painters, Willem de Kooning and Philip Guston.) The other writings include further collaborative poems; a lengthy epistolary fiction involving two long-lost brothers, Angelicus and Fidelio Fobb; Marcia, an Unfinished Novel (with Patsy Southgate), a play written on a jetliner over the Atlantic, and dizzying notes on the New York City Ballet and the French 'cubist' poet Pierre Reverdy.
