New York poets

9 10 2007

Going over the New York poets and trying to make some comparisons to the other poet genres we have discussed. My group went into more detail about O’hara and felt that he was similar to the confessional poets because some of his poems have the narrative tone as if he was just telling us his daily routine or his emotions about his life. Confessional poets do have more intense emotional subject matters, which the New York poets have more of a process over product angle to their works. O’Hara’s writing¬†in particular has more of a stream of consciousness flow, with no punctuation and steady constant rhythm. I’m just wondering if the New York poets ever really broke the boundary of their writing and confessional poet’s writing and went more in depth with their inner relationships and emotions?
