Project Description (from The Center for the Humanities, CUNY website)
this pertains to me which means to me you is a selection of correspondence between Kenneth Koch and Frank O’Hara. The letters, which were written over an eighteen-month period from 1955 to 1956, provide an account of the poets’ important, if often overlooked, friendship. Full of poems, literary gossip, and nods to artistic influences, Koch and O’Hara’s correspondence also chronicles a key moment in what would come to be know as the New York School of poets.
