Item description for The Conservative Rebellion by Elliot McGucken Thomas Newton...
The Conservative Literary Renaissance Marches On
Over the past 30 years Thomas Newton composed a sublime sequence of 64 sonnets covering:
The renaissance of metrical poetry. The history of technology from the making of the first spear, to landing on the Moon, to the space shuttle. The rise of political correctness to the 2000 election and the war on terrorism. Big wave surfing at Waimea Bay in Hawaii to climbing Mount Fuji in Japan. Autobiographical material from childhood to the present day. A bit of women's fashion.

Beautiful Poetry Jun 5, 2004
This is the exact type of poetry we need more of to brighten our daily lives. It rhymes. It means things. It's written from the heart by a man who served his country, loved his wife, read widely, felt deeply, and walked humbly. It's an inspiration for all of us.
A real piece of crap... May 14, 2004
I was originally introduce to Mr. Newton's writing when I paused by the used book section of the local St. Vincent DePaul store. Since the book was priced at $3.25, I decided to give it a read. (The provocative title really got my attention!)
After slogging my way through from cover to cover, I only wish now that the paper this book was printed on had been used to make paper towels, or possibly cartons for Chinese takeout food. I hand carried it down to the recycing bin in my apartment building and made sure that it went into the dumpster!
