This book examines the New York School of Poets and the leading writers associated with it: Frank O'Hara, James Schuyler and John Ashbury. There is a close textual analysis of the poetry of the school and a study of the impact of deconstruction, a mode of literary analysis with which John Ashbury's work in particular has come to be associated by critics in America. A postscript shows the school's continuing and changing influence today.
