Actually,MoreAuthor Biography: My poems are my life on paper, in snapshots of course. I try to recapture the emotions of remembered scenes and to render them with a moderately subdued passion. And from my earliest days I muse--sometimes philosopically. Actually, I have long withheld some of these poems , fearing they are a little too personal, but with age comes loss of inhibition, perhaps a discreet loss. I hold hands with the child in me, youth, . . . all the mes, none of which vanishes from whatever I am.

Not that I am proud of all of them, but I may be more accepting of them now than I sometimes was. James Stanley Barlow, born in Johnson City, Tennessee, August 25. 1924, looks back on careers as Air Force navigator (WWII), Presbyterian minister, and college dean and professor--University of Minnesota, Columbia University (religion) and City University of NewYork (philosophy, College of Staten Island).

He lives with his wife Nell, in Leonia, New Jersey and Bradenton, Florida. They have four children and six grandchildren. Besides poetry, his writings include The Fall into Consciousness (Philadelphia, Fortress Press, 1973).
