Poetry. "Drastic Dislocations" is the title poem of the section of new poems in DRASTIC DISLOCATIONS, and this title is consistent with many of his concerns registered in the poetry he began writing in his teens. His first publications were in the Transatlantic Review in 1964, but it was not until 1977 that BOA Editions published his first book of poems, Beast Is a Wolf with Brown Fire. This new volume includes the author's choices from each of his six previous books, poems reflecting the socio-political life of the time as well as the perennial, transcendent themes of eros and thanatos.
Barry Wallenstein was born in New York City. He received his PhD in modern poetry from New York University in 1972. Early poems first appeared in 1964 and since then six collections of poetry have been published. His most recent book is a collection of new and selected poems, DRASTIC DISLOCATIONS (NYQ Books, 2012). In the early 1970s he began collaborating with jazz artists in the performance and recording of his poetry, and he continues to perform with musicians internationally. From 1965 until 2006 he taught literature and writing at the City College of New York where he founded The Poetry Outreach Center, in which he continues to be involved as Professor Emeritus. He currently resides with his wife, Lorna, on Riverside Drive close to where he lived as a child. He lives part of each year in an old log house in the Catskills.
