Sidney Goldfarb

Already recognized as a gifted poet in his college years, Sidney Goldfarb seemingly gave up writing verse after 1980 to create his own species of drama. But a discerning ear will recognize that, for all the carnivalesque matter of his plots and the carnal reverberations of his dialogue, in conception, structure, and language, Goldfarb’s plays are as much sequences of poems as they are poetic dramas.

Goldfarb is currently a Professor of English at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he has taught creative writing since 1973. He is the author of three books of poetry, and has produced nine plays.
