In cuneiform, of umbrella satrap square-carts with hotdogs and onions of red syrup blended, of sand bejewelling the prepuce in tank suits, of Majestic Camera Stores and Schuster’s, of Kenneth in an abandoned storeway on Sunday cutting ever more insinuating lobotomies of a yet-to-be-more-yielding world of ears, of a soprano rallying at night in a cadenza (CP 146) Thus, while O’Hara’s Collected Poems does work toward a kind of improper canonization of Kenneth, it also complicates any sense of neat piths and gists that we would associate with the name.

Again, the point is a kind of energized connection that strips famous names of established connotations, while highlighting others. This process comes together perhaps most clearly and hilariously in biographia letteraria: gertrude stein She hated herself because she wrote prose. james joyce He was a very lovable person, though thorough. ronald firbank I will not go home with you, so perhaps I shall. ivy compton-burnett My grandfather’s lap was comfortable and becoming speaking is not becoming a cactus.

To universalize them is therefore not adequate; instead, they are strategic remainders that block our easy identification. The effect of these names depends upon a version of the contextual loss — at the double levels of speaker and reader — that Marotti and most readers of coteries seek earnestly to overcome. Though O’Hara is continually supplying context, he seems to be interested in what happens when it breaks down, when we encounter markers of identity that we cannot recuperate. To turn to my second category, then, names that begin to accumulate attributes generally do so as they move through the context of the poems: repetition in different contexts teaches new glosses.
