Overview

John Lars Zwerenz (1969- ) is an American journalist, poet and musician known for his romantic, impressionistic and mystical works. He owns a Bachelor's Degree in English from Queens College at The City University of New York, but at the age of 24 he left his graduate studies in order to travel and write poetry. His writings are deeply spiritual in subject matter and tone. Much of his verse employs transcendental language and is rich in meaning and musicality. Eternal Verse,(2013) widely lauded as a poetic masterpiece takes the reader on an astounding journey through the beautific realms of paradise. It has just been published by Xlibris of Simon And Schuster fame, and comprises his sixth collection of poetry. His latest volume of verse, A Lady Fair And Other Poems,(2013) published on the heels of Eternal Verse, is a book of rhyming stanzas of varied lengths and themes, all composed with classical meter and with great attention to visionary detail. This seventh volume of rhyme has been described as the poetic diary of a sailor who travels as a troubadour through the gilded gardens of a wondrous world. Zwerenz is a mystical romantic, and his poetry has been recognized by many literary critics as the best and most original verse ever penned since the death of Robert Frost of The United States in 1963. Zwerenz is also the author of Selected Poems,(2011) a poetic memoir on travel and adventure, Mist and Flame,(2011) a book of lyrical, romantic poetry, Visionary Wanderings,(2012) an astonishing volume of mystifying verse compared to the labor and results of Rembrandt, Sonnets of Dusk and Dawn,(2012) a collection of classically styled sonnets, many of which laud the poet's romantic precursors, and An American Romance,(2012) a novella which contains in its appendix Songs of Rapture and Other Poems, an exclusively mystical collection of poetry which explores the realms of existential darkness and salvific light. Zwerenz is 44 years of age, and currently resides in The United States.

Crystal whimpered in fear.<p>Saphira arched her neck. She towered over all the dragons. Something seemed familiar about her... it seemed like she looked like the leader of the Braveheart tribe. But she couldn't be.

Mist and Flame is a unique, original work of literature.  As good as anything Toni Morrison has written.  But over-rhymed.  Too much strict meter.   And the focus on romantic love in Mist and Flame is almost exclusive.  But I suppose that Zwerenz prefers romance to other themes that I am more inclined to read about, like politics.   I recommend this book, but also the writings of Toni Morrison, who is more apt to address other, more pressing, timely themes.

Mist And Flame for my wife and I proved a most delightful read. I highly recommend it. The poems within are extremely well written. I wish there was more information available about the author.

Mist and Flame will tantalize, stimulate, and expand your mind. The author¿s writings will evoke vivid memories and profound experiences for the reader. Each poem will open a new door from which we can feel the writer¿s pains, joys, and passion for life. A magnificent work for poetry enthusiasts and all readers.
