About this title: Poetry. FRANK O'HARA: POEMS FROM THE TIBOR DE NAGY EDITIONS 1952-1966 brings together three volumes of poems that Tibor de Nagy Editions published by the poet, who was a leading light of the New York School of Poets, including his first publication A City Winter and Other Poems (1952), along with later publications Oranges (1953), and Love Poems (Tentative Title) from 1965. Also included is O'Hara's last poem, "Little Elegy for Antonio Machado," from 1966, for a brochure accompanying a benefit show for Spanish Refugee Aid. Reproduced in the book are three ink drawings by Larry Rivers that were included in the original A City Winter and the cover for Oranges by Grace Hartigan. This new publication is the first time these three early volumes are gathered together in one book. It celebrates the accomplishments of one of the most significant poetic voices of the post war 20th Century, as well as his ongoing relationship with Tibor de Nagy Editions, which was started by Tibor de Nagy Gallery's John Bernard Myers in 1951. Tibor de Nagy Editions, along with O'Hara's, published first collections of poems by John Ashbery, Barbara, Guest, Kenneth Koch, and Bill Berkson, among others.
