Hailing from the mean streets of the UWS of Manhattan, Alex Forte is interested in poetry and poetics, especially of the archaic Greek variety. He is currently examining topics of aesthetics, cognition and philosophy of the mind from a diachronic perspective and how they interact with early Greek poetry. He also enjoys collaboration, and encourages interested parties to send him a message.
