Michael Robbins, whose poetry has appeared in the New Yorker, Poetry, Harper’s, and Boston Review among other places, graduated from MAPH in 2004. His MAPH thesis focused on lyric subjectivity after language poetry. He has since earned a PhD in English from UChicago, published two books, and published critical articles and continues to teach creative writing.
Frank Guam just reviewed Michael’s work for n+1 magazine, which you can check out here: https://nplusonemag.com/online-only/book-review/ride-the-lightening/ The review provides insight into both Michael’s journey to where he is now as a poet as well as his poetry itself.
Congrats on your successes, Michael, and keep up the good work!
