Poems Retrieved - by Frank O’Hara

Poems Retrieved - by Frank O’Hara | poetry-data | Scoop.it

When a first-rate poet who lived with exuberance, dies young and with drama—in the case of Frank O’Hara, at 40, after a dune buggy collided with him on Fire Island in 1966—his legacy can be badly served. Living readers, future readers and O’Hara himself, wherever he may be, should be especially grateful to Donald Allen, Bill Berkson, Marjorie Perloff and the collaboration between City Lights and Grey Fox, among others, for honoring him so respectfully. Perloff merits mention as someone whose enthusiastic blurb brought me (and should bring others) to a closer reading of her volume, Frank O’Hara, Poet Among Painters, a perfect balance of scholarship, gusto and straightforward assessment of the poet’s work, life and time.

Jeffrey Side: Empirical and Non-Empirical Identifiers [Jacket magazine #36]

Jeffrey Side - Empirical and Non-Empirical Identifiers

 

Introduction

 

In this essay, I will look at certain effects of language that I call Empirical Identifiers because of the ways in which they encourage exegetical closure through their functioning as referents to phenomena. I will also look at their opposites, which I call Non-Empirical Identifiers because of the ways in which they invite readers to participate in the creation of individual meaning and significance from language, which is autonomous and non-referential. These identifiers, by enabling a ready recognition of empirical and non-empirical writing procedures in poetry, may prove useful as diagnostic devices for future criticism.

Reblogged from Betty Generic:
Poets can be somewhat "eccentric."
