Robert Boyd's Book Report: Meditations in an Emergency

 Robert Boyd

This book, Meditations in an Emergency by Frank O'Hara, was published in 1957. O'Hara was a leader of the so-called New York School, which included such poets as Kenneth Koch, John Ashbery, Ron Padgett, Ted Berrigan, and James Schuyler. I mention the book Ninth Street Women: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler: Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art in my report, and I refer to the poem, "The Day Lady Died", in the report, even though it was not included in Meditations in An Emergency.
