An Evening With…Max Ritvo


Sunday, May 1, 2016
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Max Ritvo will read from his new full-length poetry manuscript and his chapbook, Aeons. Ritvo is a rare talent—an emerging poet who will certainly become an established poet, and soon. Lucie Brock-Broido writes, in her introduction to Ritvo’s “Poet’s Sampler” in Boston Review, “His work is composed, quite simply, of candor, of splendor, and of abandon…He can make the unbeautiful humane. You want his look on life to go on, ceaselessly.”

Ritvo holds an MFA from Columbia University, where he teaches writing. Aeons was selected by Jean Valentine for the Poetry Society of America’s 2014 NY chapbook competition. His poetry has appeared in Boston ReviewBest American Poetry Blog and The Yale Literary Magazine. He was nominated for a 2014 Pushcart Prize by Poets/Artists. His critical prose has appeared in The Huffington Post, Parnassus: Poetry in Review, and the Los Angeles Review of Books. His translations have appeared in Lyrikline, and he is working on an endangered language conservationproject. He is a comedian in the sketch comedy troupe His Majesty, the Baby, and an assistant editor at Parnassus.
