Stuart Jay Silverman was born in Brooklyn, NY, 82 years ago. He graduated from Brooklyn College and did graduate work at Columbia University and the University of Illinois. Retired from teaching (Auburn University, the University of Illinois, Urbana and Chicago campuses, and the City Colleges of Chicago), he lives in Chicago, Illinois.
Some 500 poems of his appear in 100+ journals and anthologies here and abroad. Hawk Publishing Group published his The Complete Lost Poems: A Selection. Recently, he was awarded the Der Hovanessian Prize for Translation. He feels that Parnassus has room for both free verse and formal, both of which he writes. His intent is to create a world, real or imagined, which the reader can experience. The poem, he feels, is a subsistent reality which, at its best, will enlarge and enrich the reader's world.
