Abstract
This article seeks to contribute to alternative ways of establishing poetic relation by elaborating on a recent turn towards the importance of social and group poetics in post-war American poetry. To this end I introduce a comparative study of the poetics of canonical modernist poet Wallace Stevens and two representative poets of the so-called New York School: John Ashbery and Frank O'Hara. My poetic triangulation aims to diminish the tendency to shore up poetic and critical egos to the benefit of a more nuanced understanding of wider cultural evolutions in poetic thinking that complicates notions of influence.
