Frank O'Hara


Donna Jan Pridmore - "Influenced by French movements including surrealism, Dada, and Cubism, O'Hara combined the esoteric with the colloquial in both subject matter and style, incorporation in his poems the most mundane events, lowbrow pop culture, famous people and personal friends, gay sex, tender romantic love, abstract art, classical music, and New York City setting, in a way that was simultaneously offhanded, witty, and at times deeply personal."
