Item description for A Ballad for Metka Krasovec by Michael Biggins Tomaz Salamun...
Tomaz Salamun is perhaps the most popular and prolific poet in Central Europe today. Thanks to the translation of his work he has also been widely acclaimed abroad. To date has had four collections of selected poetry published in English. A Ballad for Metka Krasovec, originally published in the early 1980s at the mid-point of Salamuns career, is considered by the author to be one of his finest. The volume is characterized by often striking imagery and a sexual tension that is pervasive. As this is the first complete single volume of Salamuns to appear in English translation, it offers readers a unique opportunity to glimpse the author at a particular stage in his life and creative development. The collection has an inner coherence often not found in his collections of selected poems. The poems range from the incantatory, to reflections on his lovers, family, and country, to narrative-style recollections of his stays in Mexico and the United States.
