Summary
This generous new selection by Mark Ford reflects all the phases and varied achievements of O'Hara's tragically foreshortened career, including his drama, and is followed by an appendix of key prose texts such as "Personism," in which O'Hara succinctly summed up his overall approach to poetry: "You just go on your nerve."--Jacket flap
