Michael Horovitz (born 1935) is an Englishmarker poet, artist and translator, educated at Brasenose Collegemarker, Oxfordmarker.

Though initially associated with the British Poetry Revival, Horovitz is best known for his appearance at the International Poetry Incarnation at the Royal Albert Hallmarker on June 11 1965, alongside Allen Ginsberg and Alexander Trocchi.
