In 1934 Sidney Alexander graduated from Columbia University with Bachelor of Science degree.
Sidney Alexander was a writer with the Office of War Information during the early 1940s and joined the staff of The Reporter magazine in 1947, but saw his play Giles Corey produced Off-Broadway in 1948. Alexander stayed on the staff of The Reporter after he moved to Florence, Italy, in the 1950s, finally leaving that post in 1968. Throughout his career, he served on the faculty at several United States universities including Farleigh Dickinson, the New School for Social Research, Syracuse and Virginia Commonwealth, as well as numerous schools abroad.
He wrote plays, poems, and novels and received several awards in addition to grants from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Max Ascoli Foundation. His translation for The History of Italy received the P.E.N. Award in 1970 and his 1978 biography Marc Chagall received strong praise from critics. Alexander devoted three novels to Michelangelo: Michelangelo the Florentine, The Hand of Michelangelo, and Nicodemus.
His other novels include The Celluloid Asylum and My Beard to Heaven. Alexander’s work was included in several anthologies, both for short stories and poetry, and he wrote fifteen books on Renaissance history and art. His last work, a translation of Horace’s Odes and Satires, was published in 1999.
