'The Gilded Sun and other verse' by the esteemed and celebrated American poet, John Zwerenz is by far the most definitively accomplished volume in the realm of post modern contemporary poetry. While most of the themes contained within this modern masterpiece are romantic in the most classical aspect of the word, each poem possesses its own impressionistic colors, its own varied indelible charms and merits. The cumulative effect on the reader, after having read 'The Gilded Sun' is one of unadulterated awe for all that is aesthetically pure, bright and excellent. Angela Landon, Boston, MA

'The Gilded Sun' by John Zwerenz' was assigned for me to read this fall semester in my senior English Lit Class. Although I am not very enthusiastic when it comes to modern poetry books, as many of them fail to meet expectations, this one was very different in many serendipitous ways. Zwerenz's poetry is classic, and crafted in the style of late 19th Century romantic poetry. His poems are all paced musically and every (or just about every) line rhymes with another, the way poetry used to be published. Although the book is a bit long for a poetry book (about 150 pages), the price was right and the experience was new and exciting. I read 'The Gilded Sun' in less than an hour, and I was very happy to have found it.

This new book by American poet John Zwerenz is not on the expensive side, and is well worth the money. Every poem in this fantastic book blends with the next to form one, long soliloquy of enrapturing verse. 5 stars easily! Susan Walker, Denver , CO

A volume based on visions, 'The Gilded Sun' is a good and accurate representation of modern impressionistic poetry. Zwerenz very skillfully uses colorful and varied imagery to convey and evoke emotion in a manner that is unique and yet classically influenced. LeAnn Howard Rockefeller Center, New York, NY
