About John Lars Zwerenz John L. Zwerenz is an American journalist, essayist, novelist and poet. (1) Zwerenz was born in 1970 in New York City to a wealthy family. His father and mother both descended from multiple generations of Anglo Saxon Americans. Zwerenz' father became actively involved in local and state conservative politics, and contributed both time and money to further the power of several right wing elected officials. Zwerenz' poetry first appeared in many literary publications during the late 1980's and early '90s. Hundreds of poems written during this time were composed by Zwerenz as an undergraduate student at New York City's Queens College from which he graduated with honors in 1992. (2) After a failed attempt to earn a living in conservative employment, Zwerenz began an extensive period of travel, writing what would eventually make up the bulk of his later published works in such places as London and Paris. In 2014, Zwerenz was hired by Emage Magazine International, a widely published in print arts publication as the magazine's poetry writer which resulted in the wide exposure of Zwerenz' vanity published poetry books leading to a series of contracts with traditional publishing firms, both in the United Kingdom and in the States. His subsequent published poetic volumes were highly successful and his earlier works rose dramatically in price. (3) Zwerenz' productive and inspiring career was brought together in a single anthology, spanning eleven volumes. Published by Green Frog Publishing in February of 2020, The Complete Anthology encapsulated Zwerenz' entire published poetic catalog. Often examining the pain that comes with romantic love, many of the poems in this collection were built around the theme of that sensation. From Visionary Wanderings to Mystic Wines, each volume offers its own unique approaches to the craft. The prolific output of the author in this tome reflects a sharp mind, educated in and inspired by the poetic greats, as well as an identified and honed passion for the craft. The main elements of Zwerenz' verse are romantic and impressionistic in nature. Zwerenz’s structure and meter are provided with a natural feel that many poets fail to capture. (4) (5) (6) One example of Zwerenz' poetry is printed below, taken from his "The Grave and other Poems": The Grave In the clouded, dusky afternoon As you hear the clang of a swaying bell The rising ring of its dreadful knell Ascends to the dreary, lifeless moon. As cryptic winds through dead boughs pass Below one tombstone's familiar name Another soul the demons claim Beneath grim reeds and yellow grass. And when dawn arrives with miasmic dew Upon the wanton meadow and its horrid grave A being there moans, too late to save - None other than the likes of you!
