Description

Slavko Michalic was born in 1928 in Karlovac, Croatia. As a journalist, he moved to Zagreb and there he published his first book of poetry, Komorna muzika (Chamber Music) in 1954.

In his poetry, Mihalic attempted to overcome the absurdity of life with his ardent belief in the humanistic role of the poet. Writing in an idiom remarkable for its simplicity, precision, and lyrical fluency, he was considered outstanding among Croatian ports of his generation, and remarkable among poets on the Continent at large. His work has been translated into many languages, and he is a recipient of numerous literary awards.

These poems are taken from his last three publications: Sabrane pjesme (Collected Poems) 1998. Akordeon (Accordion) 2000, and Močvara (Marsh) 2004. In this edition, one can truly admire and respond to the wondrous nature of the poet.
