This chapter resituates and reconceptualises Frank O'Hara in the light of the theoretical and cultural landscape of the late 1990s and the changing critical perspective on his work. Using literary and cultural theory as a springboard, it negotiates the breakdown of unities in his poetry, the emergence of a hypertextual web, and a splintered subjectivity. The chapter also repositions the poet in terms of a personalised hyperpolitics, postmodern eclecticism, and parallelism between real life and text life.
