Seriously Serial

by John J. Trause, Jill Greenberg
     
 

John Trause is unique: a classicist who loves pop. His poems capture our desire to mock and at the same time learn every juicy detail of pseudo-celebrity - Edie Sedgwick, Doris Duke, Governor McGreevey - with all the classical style of Plato writing about Atlantis. He is our generation's undiscovered T.S. Eliot.

Overview

John Trause is unique: a classicist who loves pop. His poems capture our desire to mock and at the same time learn every juicy detail of pseudo-celebrity - Edie Sedgwick, Doris Duke, Governor McGreevey - with all the classical style of Plato writing about Atlantis. He is our generation's undiscovered T.S. Eliot.
- David Silverman, author of Typo: The Last AmericanTypesetter or How I Made and Lost 4 Million Dollars

Don't trust the adverb in the title. You never can tell if John is serious or not. His deeply shallow poems are simultaneously extravagant and poker faced.
- Mark Swartz, author of H2O and Instant Karma

These poems are the ideal mixture of gravitas and fun. Trause is able to encompass doubt, and art, the Holy Land, celebrity and much more in these refined lyrics. The spirit of play moves through even the most serious of these poems.
- Matthew Rohrer, author of Rise Up
