This volume offers a panorama of Croatian poetry written over the last five centuries. Touching on the different subjects and shifting fashions of poetic creativity throughout Croatia’s turbulent history, this poetry reveals the spirit of its people. The poems are clustered chronologically into chapters representing seven literary periods. The Renaissance, The Baroque, Classicism, Romanticism, Croatian Modernism, Echoes of the Two World Wars, and The Postmodern-Contemporary Period. This impressive artistic achievement fills a lacuna in Croatian poetry translation and scholarship.

Reviews

“This compilation is the first comprehensive historical anthology of Croatian poetry translated into English since Antun Bonifa?i?’s publication of The Anthology of Croat Verse 1450-1950 (1981), a modest selection, long out of print… This work can rightly be considered a vade mecum for readers, scholars, and lovers of poetry.”
