Blue cloth, gilt lettered spine. xiii+194pp.. A good tight, clean copy. No dust-wrapper. Owner name on label to paste-down. Vasko Popa is one of the great post-war European poets. From surrealist fable to traditional folk-tale, from personal anecdote to tribal myth, Popa's poetry embodies in an original form the most profound imaginative truths of our age, precisely located in the reality and history of Serbia, in the heart of Central Europe. His "Collected Poems" is an essential work of our time.
