The New York School started in the 1950s and was one of the most influential movements of American poetry - from the last half of the 20th century to today.

Coverage includes: central poets of the movement, including John Ashbery and Frank O'Hara Major works - including poems, books of poems, and fiction - such as Ashbery's Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror , which won the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Critics Circle Award, and National Book Award in 1976; poets and artists who influenced the movement or were influenced by it, such as Andy Warhol, the Beat poets, W.H. Auden, and Robert Lowell; New York locales important to the movement, such as the Bowery Poetry Club, Brooklyn, the Chelsea Hotel, and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe; magazines and journals; and, more.
