Anne Waldman was director of the Poetry Project in Manhattan's St. Mark's Church in the Bowery from 1966 to 1978, and the live, eclectic programs of readings she organized provided a link between 50's Beats (Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and Gregory Corso have been regular readers) and 70's punks (Patti Smith and Lou Reed have read their own poems and so has a new generation of young poets with punk-intensive, form-splattering verbal styles). Ms. Waldman, who presided over the St. Mark's scene as some combination of oracle, siren and den mother, is herself a dramatic reader of her own poetry, at once deadpan and ferocious, whose influence can be seen in the stage demeanors of such performers as Laurie Anderson and David Byrne. She was among the New York poets who, in the late 70's and early 80's, anticipated the current vogue in so-called spoken-word recordings by releasing albums of recited poetry on the Giorno Poetry Systems label issued by the poet John Giorno. A feminist by fiat and a co-founder with Allen Ginsberg of the provocatively titled Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics in Boulder, Colo., where she still teaches, Ms. Waldman has also written some exceptionally lovely, blissful poems about the joys of motherhood. - New York Times Book Review.
