Biography

Robert Lax (November 30, 1915 in Olean, New York – September 26, 2000 in Olean, New York) was an American poet, known in particular for his association with famed Trappist monk and writer Thomas Merton. Another friend of his youth was the painter Ad Reinhardt. After a long period of drifting from job to job about the world, Lax settled on the island of Patmos during the latter part of his life. Considered by some to be a self-exiled hermit, he nonetheless welcomed visitors to his home, but did nothing to court publicity or expand his literary career or reputation.
