Hyperscapes in the Poetry of Frank O'Hara
Liverpool University Press

This chapter argues that the simultaneous location and dislocation of the city in O'Hara's poetry opens up a radical reformulation of the cityscape as hyperscape. This reformulation occurs through the interface between the embodied subject and the city, in which each continuously remoulds the other, revealing new political and subjective spaces. It is possible because neither embodied subject nor city is static, unified, nor impermeable. The result of this reconfiguration, in its most radical form, is the hyperscape.
