About this product
- DescriptionThe first truly representative translation into English of a Central European poetic prodigy of the early twentieth century - the Slovenian Rimbaud - who died at the age of twenty-two but whose work bears comparison at once with Rilke, Ungaretti and Apollinaire, yet has its own distinctive and disarming iconoclastic vitality.
- Author BiographySrecko Kosovel (1904-1926) was born in Sezana, spent his childhood in the neighbouring village of Tomaj, and was educated in Ljubljana. Often called the Slovenian Rimbaud, he is thought to have written over one thousand poems before his early death, although during his lifetime he published less than forty. Renowned initially for his impressionist lyrics of the Karst region above Trieste, the remarkable modernist component of his work began to be realised only forty years after his death. Bert Pribac is a Slovenian poet and essayist. He studied comparative literature at the University of Ljubljana but in 1959 he left Slovenia and after a short period as a refugee in Germany, settled in 1960 in Australia where he eventually became librarian for the Commonwealth Department of Health. He returned to Slovenia in 2003. He is the author of six collections of poetry, and has edited and translated into Slovenian two anthologies of Australian contemporary verse. His most recent publication is a Slovenian translation from the French of the Rubayat of the Persian poet Omar Khayam. David Brooks is an acclaimed Australian poet, short-fiction-writer, novelist and essayist whose work has been translated into several languages. He is married to the Slovenian photographer and translator Teja Pribac and, when not in Slovenia, lives in New South Wales where he teaches Australian Literature at the University of Sydney and co-edits the journal Southerly.
