  Doug Holder interviews poet Mark Pawlak about his new poetry collection " Reconnaissance"


Mark Pawlak was born in Buffalo, New York in 1948. He moved to
  Boston in 1966 to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where
  he studied physics, and he has continued to live in the Boston area. At
  the MIT, Pawlak enrolled in a poetry seminar with Denise Levertov.
  Poetry has been an integral part of his life and work ever since. His
  original poems, and his translations from the German of Bertolt Brecht
  and others, have appeared widely in literary magazines and anthologies.
  Levertov introduced his first poetry collection, The Buffalo Sequence
  (Copper Canyon, 1978). Eight other collections have followed, the most
  recent, RECONNAISSANCE: New an Selected Poems and Poetic Journals (Hanging
  Loose). Pawlak is also the editor of a number of anthologies. PRESENT
  TENSE: Poets in the World (Hanging Loose, 2004), is a collection of
  contemporary political poetry. With Dick Lourie, he has edited four
  anthologies of outstanding high school writing, Shooting the Rat,
  Bullseye, Smart Like Me, and When We Were Countries (all from Hanging Loose)
