Description

In 1952, the New York gallery Tibor de Nagy published A City Winter, Frank O'Hara's first collection of poems, under the Tibor de Nagy Editions imprint, inaugurating the gallery's now longstanding association with what has come to be known as the New York School of poetry. O'Hara had been in the city for barely a year, but was already immersing himself in its art scenes, becoming especially close to Grace Hartigan, and collaborating on a series of poem-pictures which Tibor de Nagy exhibited in 1953. For this occasion, O'Hara's second book, Oranges, was published: a series of prose poems in the Rimbaud manner, printed in an edition of about 75. A third collection, Love Poems (Tentative Title), was published in 1965, as O'Hara was preparing the manuscript of Lunch Poems (often described wrongly as the poet's first book). Poems from the Tibor de Nagy Editions collects these three volumes.show more
