Welcome to Brendan Constantine’s website. Known for his dreamy abstraction and the emotional ferocity of his work both on the page and on the stage, Constantine has helped to sustain the poetry communities of Southern California. Mr. Constantine serves these communities as a teacher of poetry in local schools and colleges as well as hospitals, elder care centers and shelters for the homeless. He is currently poet in residence at The Windward School. Brendan is also very proud of his work with the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project.
I am deeply honored and totally blown away by filmmaker Sarah Jensen’s adaptation of the poem ‘The Translation’ from the book Birthday Girl With Possum. I hope you enjoy it. Please look for Ms. Jensen’s work and Hello Margeaux Productions at YouTube, Vimeo, and at http://hellomargeaux.wordpress.com/
The author at 18 in 1985. The following year he appeared for key scenes in the film “Pretty In Pink.” Did you see him?
