Three New York Poets Reviews collections of poetry by William Winter, George Arnold, and Fitz-James O'Brien, all recently published at the time this article was written. The O'Brien and Arnold anthologies were both edited by Winter. The reviewer describes the authors' works as well as the authors themselves and their involvement with New York Bohemianism, "a cisatlantic imitation of Baranger's or Mürger's Bohème; and not a bad one, so far as the Bohemianism went. They cultivated, some of them, the same eccentricities of dress and manner; they lived on the same principle, namely, that life in a garret is pleasant at twenty; and they clean out-drank the Frenchmen, having a strain of Berserker blood in their Anglo-Saxon constitutions" (469).
