A ballad for Metka Krašovec by Tomaž Šalamun( Book )

15 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit mir schläft man auf hartem Boden unter Skorpionen, aber auch dort, wo man Früchte pflückt und murmelt, du bist die Farbe, du bist die Farbe.<Radikal und kompromisslos lebt Tomaž Šalamun seine eigenen Albträume und Ekstasen, doch er lebt auch unsere. Er verzeichnet in extremis die Wunder und Verbrechen des sich selbst verschlingenden und gebärenden Kosmos,>den Kampf um den Samen, der im All abläuft<. Ballade für Metka Krašovec ist ein Buch über Liebe und Lust. Ein Buch, in dem Šalamun die Erlebnisse eines aufwühlenden Jahres bannt, durchwirkt von seiner Poesie, in der es keine Trennung zwischen Realem und Surrealem, zwischen Magie und Wirklichkeit gibt. Warme Erinnerung an die Kindheit in Slowenien, die Hochzeitstage mit seiner Frau Metka, die Nächte mit seinem mexikanischen Geliebten Alejandro (>siehst du denn nicht, dass er mir als Christus erschienen ist<) - alles wird einer befreienden Poetik der omnipräsenten Verzückung unterworfen und folgt den Geboten der>Transgression<, der Überschreitung poetischer Geschmacks- und Tabugrenzen

This newest collection of poems from Tomaz Salamun is exuberant, ambitious, and full of surprises.

""Here the poet juggles many tones, languages, and countries. Desire is evoked as both frustrating and exhilarating-""I'm watered by longing, knocking my""head into the wall, on the ground, or I burn, burn, ""folded up on the couch.""And memory

"To read Tomaž Šalamun is to understand the delights of contemporary poetry. He is one of the major names in the international avant-garde. Irreverent, self-mythologizing, tragic, and visionary, he is a poet of immense range and cunning, able to encompass everything from Balkan wars and politics to the most intimate personal experiences. Feast, his latest collection in English, brings together both early and more recent work."--Jacket

At last available in English translation, Soy Realidad is Tomaz Salamun's twenty-first collection of poetry, originally published in 1985. Showing a maturing poet at home as a citizen of the world, Soy Realidad ranges far from Salamun's Slovenia, combining his native language with Latin, French, English, and Spanish, as well as evoking such places as Belize, the Sierra Nevada, and Mexico City. From sex to God, from landscape to literature, Salamun's poetry is as ever a restless and witty inquisitor, peeling back the layers of the world
