You with hands more innocent : selected poems of Vesna Parun

Vesna Parun (Author), Dasha C̆ulić Nisula (Translator), Marko Marian (Artist)
"Poetry that once enraged the social-realist critics of her country is now recognized and respected for its romantic lyrical accomplishment. The poems in this edition are deeply moving, and great examples of language that exposes Eastern European culture to the English-speaking world - a volume that captures the feeling, essence, rhythm, and depth of the author's words as best as English can through superb translations.

Dawns and hurricanes
The black olive tree
Faithful to otters
You and never
A coral returned to the sea
Alas! Morning
Accursed rain
Ashamed to die
