I would have liked to have hung out with him. His longer poems are most congenial and welcoming. It's sad that in the end, he was something of a mad poet, although I confess I find that attractive. He did the mad poet thing more successfully than some, I think. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374530890, Paperback)

In Selected Poems, we experience the full range of James Schuyler's achievement, confirming that he was among the late twentieth century's truly vital and distinctive poetic voices. One of the most significant writers of the New York School--which unofficially included John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, and Kenneth Koch, among others--Schuyler was strongly influenced by both art and music in his work, often incorporating rapid shifts in sound, shape, and color within his poems that almost gave his work the effect of a collage and engendered comparisons with Whitman and Rimbaud.
