Description of Work
Nat writes from an impulse for the lyrical. Even when exploring more conceptual modes of writing, his work bears this mark. Thematically, his poems often fall into three categories: the recollection of catastrophe, the possibility and dissolution of romantic love, and a yearning for premodern existence.
Nat Sufrin’s poetry appears in TriQuarterly, RHINO, Nacht, and The Death and Life of American Cities. His work is also featured in a video series from Brazilian magazine Modo de Usar & Co. He received his BA in English Literature and Film & Media Studies from Swarthmore College in 2011. After attending the Summer Literary Seminars in Montreal, he undertook a year of Jewish text study as a Fellow at Yeshivat Hadar. This past fall he interned at Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Currently, he is interning at the Poetry Society of America and working at the Brooklyn restaurant Parish Hall.
