The precise yet commonplace phrases of Frank O’Hara’s poetry comprised a style so distinctive that one critic referred to it as the “I-do-this and then I-do-that school of poetry.” Along with fellow practitioners John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, and James Schuyler, they came to be known as the New York School of Poets. As a group they were in step with the visual arts and counted painters among their closest friends—friendships that reached from New York to the East End, and produced remarkable artistic collaborations.
