about maximus

Maximus is a magazine of poetry.

It’s important, at this point, to mention that Maximus publishes poetry of unusual form: disobedient poetry; poetry that is in vehement defiance of what we think poetry should look, feel, and taste like. That’s all Maximus is — and more.

The work of Charles Olson, Joyelle McSweeney, Alice Notley, Frank O’Hara, Ted Berrigan, Elliot Earls, Allen Ginsberg, Ezra Pound, Bei Dao, Pauline Kael, Tom Will, William Carlos Williams, Ruth Baumann, Tennesse Williams, Jane Austen, Langston Hughes, Andy Warhol, Kenneth Koch, Mary Oliver, Robert Creeley, Emily Dickinson, and Mao Zedong inspires us.
