Barren Harvest: Selected Poems of Dane Zajc
 

Barren Harvest: Selected Poems of Dane Zajc (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Zajc, Dane
Edited by Debeljak, Ales
Translated by Johnson-Debeljak, Erica

Zajc, born in 1929, is one of Central Europe's most important poets and a founding father of post-World War II modernism. This is the first comprehensive volume of his work to appear in English and presents the entire creative arch of Zajc's vision from early poems to his mature ...work. Having been incarcerated in communist jails, Zajc's political resistance to the dictatorial regime gives his work an urgency that propels the reader into a vertigo of sinister and evil. His poems speak of the profound solitude that is the destiny of contemporary man, using the vocabulary of the natural world and of bodily sensations to illuminate both the mortal and lethal aspects of the human condition.
