Frank O'Hara's writing is central to any consideration of 20th century American poetry. This collection of essays, the first to be dedicated to O'Hara in nearly two decades, asks why O'Hara remains so important to 21st century readers and writers of poetry. The book is transatlantic in tone, combining American scholarship with a wide sampling of British writers. For many, O'Hara's distinctive appeal depends on his witty depictions of urban experience, his relationship to the painters of Abstract Expressionism and the exhilarating immediacy of his poetic voice. Yet these chatty and approachable qualities coexist with a testing engagement with currents in European and American modernism. Frank O'Hara Now offers a comprehensive picture of the poet, presenting the conversational insouciance of the writing alongside its more intransigent features.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A very well-conceived and well-structured book. I highly commend the conception of this collection, its careful structure and its pertinence to the contemporary understanding of avant-garde writing. -- Tim Woods
the volume seems a model of editors' reenergizing debate on a writer who is highly pertinent to the contemporary understanding of avant-garde writing; and it is to the credit of Liverpool University Press that it perceives a need to support such debates in academic publishing. * Journal of American Studies *
Robert Hampson and Will Montgomery's edited collection, Frank O'Hara Now: New Essays on the New York Poet, is a welcome contribution to the discipline and is the first collection of essays dedicated to O'Hara. * Years Work in English Studies, vol 91, no 1 *
