1967-1968 COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, School of Continuing Education. Student: New York City, NY Student: In Columbia, I began to study Middle Eastern literature and Persian language, partially as a result of my studies of Rumi and my quest for more satisfying answers. It was during this period that I began to develop a screenwriting co-operative.

1963-1966 ST. JOHN’S COLLEGE, Annapolis, Maryland. Student: After three and a half years of studying the Classics, I began to think more about films, which began to enchant me with their possibilities. Whereas in High School, I was interested in philosophy and literature, I began to believe that the Western philosophic tradition was deficient and I spent a lot of private time, searching for a more satisfying point of view.

1960-1963 CALHOUN HIGH SCHOOL, North Merrick, New York. Student: In tenth grade, I began experimentation with “Beat” poetry, where I was influenced by Allen Ginsburg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Gregory Curso. By 11th grade, I had discovered classical literature and learned how to write metered verse in all forms, including classical sonnets. Simultaneously, was exposed to the Neo-classical poets and W.B. Yeats. After undertaking a study of plays, ranging from the Ancient Greeks (Aeschylus, Sophocles, Aristophanes) to Elizabethan to modern theater, I undertook to write contemporary plays in Neo-Classical verse. It was probably by virtue of this route, rather than my grades, that permitted my acceptance in St. John’s College, which specialized in a classics program based on the Great Books. During High School, I completed “Hal- A Study of the Earth Cycle,” a play about a child messiah; “The Shaman of Hickory Hall,” a Civil War story about Slavery and made substantial progress in a science fiction verse play called, “The Prince of Scavengers.” First two plays had songs I wrote, with music by Sam Burton. I also completed a book of poetry called “Sacred Blasphemies and Profane Recollections.”
