Our first version of this selection from one of Eastern Europe's major figures sold out. The new version adds two sequences--Give Me Back My Rage and Heaven's Ring--as well as some previously unpublished sections of the justly famous series, The Little Box. Simic and Popa are a perfect match. A book for surrealists, mythographers, postmodernists, scientists, and lovers of poetry and games. Winner of the PEN Translation Prize.

About the Author

CHARLES SIMIC, by virtue of his Yugoslav background and his position as a celebrated contemporary American poet, is ideally situated to be translator for Popa. His years of work on Popa have brought his versions to a pitch of perfection rarely achieved in the translation of poetry. Simic's own most recent collections are Selected Poems and Unending Blues.
