This is a collection of poems by the author of the novel Purgatorio.

This book of verses harks back to the late Renaissance of Florence and expands

into what the poet calls ""rarefied tracts of toiling and dreaming.""

Quotes from Online Book Club ( that reviewed my

last book Purgatorio. These quotes include:

""It is a great book"" and ""He is a gifted poet"".

Excerpts from ""In the Twilight"":

""...but the echo of an echo may be heard in a dreamlike flash of a vigorous

transcendent wave.""

""...the moment turns to stone, a monument to rapturous illusion.""

""...but the willow branch still blooms, and the pond is alive with primeval tunes

below the smoke of my untimely dreams.""

""...I feel like singing, undaunted by the twilight of my fate.""
