M.Z. Ribalow, The Time We Have Misspent

A selection of sonnets from The Time We Have Misspent read by the author on the occasion of its 2012 publication by NeoPoiesis Press.

With this collection of sonnets, Meir Z. Ribalow takes his rightful place alongside the likes of Frost, Millay, Shelley, Keats and – yes, I’ll say it – Shakespeare, as one of our rare masters of the English language sonnet form. The evident joy with which Mr. Ribalow plays with language in each gem contained in this volume shows the freedom he feels where others find constraint; in the mere fourteen lines allotted him, Mr. Ribalow manages to take his readers on journeys as deep and as intimate as they are epic. You will be delighted, charmed, moved and awed by what you find in this collection. It is nothing short of astonishing.

New River Dramatists


A program of stories, plays, and poetry co-produced with New River Dramatists.

New River Dramatists, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, is a not-for-profit project that distinguishes itself in that it is looking for writers to assist, not works to produce. Engaging writers on the strength of their individual talents instead of the potential merit of a single piece, payment of Honoraria to all participants, the absence of casting and the commitment to process first are among many factors that, taken all together, make New River Dramatists unique.
