Description
Poetry. WHAT IT IS LIKE is the definitive selection of adventurous work by the man James Schuyler called "the most stimulating poet of his generation." "The challenge of writing about the sensual qualities of New York City which seems so tired, by North's pen becomes transcendent again. And that's only one of the things his poetry accomplishes. He is witty when wit seems all but lost, gorgeous when gorgeousness is supposed to have crawled off to wherever Frank O'Hara's odes come from" Ange Mlinko.
