Product Overview

Poetry. Translated from the Macedonian by P.H. Liotta. "Bogomil Gjuzel [pronounced Dzyuzel] is Macedonia's greatest living poet. The publication of these fine translations illustrates how the sense of living in tragic times permeates Gjuzel's work. What makes these poems especially moving is their sense of impending doom, the increasing despair and hopelessness in the face of ever-new injustices and sufferings for which there's no easy answer . . . Only in lyric poetry, as fine as Gjuzel's, can a reliable historical record be found of what it is like to live with great evil"-from the Introduction by Charles Simic. The poems in THE WOLF AT THE DOOR constitute a poetic cycle and constitute a search for roots, humanity and survival in the gloom of recent Balkan history. "Grow, my child;/ grow, little eucalyptus,// in other worlds,/ beneath other skies// where the sun rises/ as it rises here"-from "Nostalgia."
