Pearl Without Price, First the worst: your five dollar check bounced. N'importe. I made it good, and you can pay me back when . . . the primroses come back to 49th Street. Poet Mark Ford has described the letters of James Schuyler as "witty, graceful, sophisticated, and gossipy." Particularly poignant are these Schuyler letters to fellow poet Frank O'Hara. Entertaining and transcendently poetic, they are the portrait of a friendship between two great New York School poets.
