Books Acquired Recently: New York School Edition

Ashbery, John. Girls on the Run: A Poem. 1999. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2000.

Girls on the Run is a poem about the “outsider artist” Henry Darger, who is a figure I have been fascinated by for the past decade or so. I enjoy Ashbery’s work in general, but have read less than half of it because he was so prolific. When I heard he had written a book about Darger, I put it on my to-read list. Over the past few weeks I’ve been feeling the need to read more of his work, so I decided to order this book.

O’Hara, Frank. Early Writing. Ed. Donald Allen. Bolinas, CA: Grey Fox Press, 1977.

O’Hara has been my favorite poet for many years. I’ve had this collection of his college poems on my to-buy list for a while, and finally got around to it.
