It's fascinating to see these poems in its original edition and placement. A bing-bongo for the buck is always the Selected or Collected poems - but I enjoy reading this and seeing it how O'Hara saw it in the years 1952-1966. This slim volume is a perfect read on an one-way trip from Silverlake to West Hollywood. Also the flavor of NYC Manhattan is so strong with just a few lines conveying an entire world that is NYC. Well, O'Hara's NYC.

Very elegant and beautifully designed book. Even if you hav

Frank O'Hara: Poems from the Tabor De Nagy Editions is a collection of poems from the Tabor De Nagy series.

Some poems are mediocre, but his poem, "A City Winter" written in a series of sonnets is absolutely stunning; it is his most virutoso and best. There are other poems that are excellent and I think I'm being unfair not citing those, but one poem is all one needs to find any excuse ...more

Frank O'Hara's books are sort of like Smiths records in that individual poems might appear in more than one book and the books shouldn't be seen as representing specific time periods.

His Collected Poems is probably overkill, and it doesn't even include all of his poems.

But much like I need to own all of the Smiths' records, I feel th

This is a great collection, allowing the reader to follow O'Hara from his early formalism to his last collection, Love Poems. Beauty, intentionally or not, surfaces everywhere.
