In Selected Poems, we experience the full range of James Schuyler's achievement, confirming that he was among the late twentieth century's truly vital and distinctive poetic voices. One of the most significant writers of the New York School--which unofficially included John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, and Kenneth Koch, among others--Schuyler was strongly influenced by both art and music in his work, often incorporating rapid shifts in sound, shape, and color within his poems that almost gave his work the effect of a collage and engendered comparisons with Whitman and Rimbaud.

Review quote

"This posthumous collection of Schuyler's (1923-1991) work will confirm the poet's mastery of a type of poem made famous by his friend Frank O'Hara in the late 1950s. ...Rarely has a poet imparted so much of his experience as honestly and engagingly as Schuyler does here." - Publishers Weekly
