The radical minimal poetry by the american Robert Lax (1915-2000) was appreciated even beyond the literary scene, turning Lax from an insider's tip into an iconic figure. Lax's works were deeply influenced during his stay at the Columbia University in New York City. There he was a member of a group of young avantgarde-artists, whose anti-establishment lifestyle and attitude made them precessors of the Beat Generation. During this time Lax reduced his poetry more and more to its absolute necessary minimum. His lifestyle followed soon thereafter. He spent the last 35 years of his life on Patmos, demonstrating that sparingness and slowness are a necessary counterworld to the stress and noise of our civilisation.
