Boukova manages to transfuse Balkan tradition to contemporary expressive means, ,to transform inner experience to extroversive manifestation, comfortably balancing at the border between modern and postmodern. Original in their conception and execution images and a poetic force which subdues sentimentalism, these are poems that any contemporary poet would aspire to write.

Boukova_K


Boukova is a Borgesian type of author. She favors play, references, riddles unexpected twists, ironies, and the dramaturgy of verse. She possesses deep knowledge not just in the sphere of the humanities, in which she specialized, but she is also enticed by science, she knows a lot, and all of this is reflected in Notes of the Phantom Woman. In the book, the intonations change abruptly, the verse is jagged, the rhythm too, the tone is sharp, in some places, the aphorism turns the verse into a sentence, but whether it does not want to "slip" us, to "check" us, or to "check" ourselves, we wonder as we read whether this irony has not imperceptibly turned into sarcasm… The reader of the book often asks questions. He has to question what is said, be careful in the text, harness his knowledge and at the same time let go of the kite of the imagination to work the metaphors.

A ruthless game Silvia Choleva.

Iana Boukova is a great poet. Very big. Her new poems are poems of a free man. They are permanently looking for the reader, but do not fall in love with him at all. They do what they want. They even get used to their company of her "ancient" political poems written in the 1980s. There is nothing beautiful. Nothing secondary. Surrealist painting has become graphics, scribbles with a drypoint. 100% Iana Boukova.

DRAPETOMANIA

In what language can we make poetry today? How do we engender a poetic discourse that is alive, with edge and attuned to the present, the inner existential present as well as the historic and social one? How does that discourse not merely attune itself, but initiate a dialogue? Drapetomania, Iana Boukova’s new book, answers these questions in its own artistic way, having assimilated in a thoroughly idiosyncratic manner both poignant lyricism and intensive image-making, which comprise her poetic ancestry, as well as the contemporary trend towards documentation poetry. The outcome is a one-of-a-kind book, a poetry of thinking which produces in the form of well-crafted poems the language it needs in order to reflect.
The nexus of linguistic tropes which succeed one another in the book create its unique idiom. The pared down exposition of events, carefully selected so that they constitute linguistic and mental events on their own right, often along the dimension of a poetic revelation, is interwoven with a philosophical, poetic thought assuming the guise of a riddle, or a sequence of dense aphorisms. Although it avails itself of an array of terms and disparate stories from a variety of sources, there is no ‘found text’ as such in the book, insofar as the poet successfully uses all the different ‘languages’ she employs, to mould her own. We are simultaneously the spider web and the spider, Boukova’s poetic work seems to indicate, with its continuous engendering of connections. It transforms the selfevident, adds itself to the mystery without solving it, aware that it is a part of it, and expounds its unrelenting logic, stretching it to the point of absurdity. Every such move of her poetic baton does not lead to redemption or to a solution, but, rather, to emptiness.

A pointed intellect is in charge: a restless, ironic intelligence is given utterance in a style that’s meant to smart, to cause abrasions, unburdened by the delusion of prophetic speech and the concomitant assurance of high discourse.

The details come to life here - the world is colorful and unpredictable you need twice as much attention to follow every movement. That is a world that requires the active assistance of the reader - to navigate, discover the logic of the characters, and get involved in the game.

"These are four fairy tales that are not for children at all. The writer goes her way through wandering fairy tale plots or composes new ones, but she offers us neither beauty nor consolation, let alone a way out. And she slaps us. Also, she does it four times. And we want more. The reader must be careful of every word in its headlong syllable, but no matter how vigilant it is, the anxiety of ambiguity, of the otherworldly logic of events, remains. There remains the categoricalness of the finals, in which we face nothing in the face.

The collection A as in Anything contains seven short stories united by themes such as free choice, clich?s in fiction and in life, and the painful shortage of information provided by reality to help us make sense of it. Structured as games of free association with genres, subjects and styles – Zen Buddhist koan, classic Russian storytelling, whodunit, Kafkaesque narrative, and South American soap-opera – the stories represent an investigation of sorts, a search for clues and cause-and-effect relations that the characters are forced to conduct in an attempt to “decipher” the events in their lives. Paradox, uncertainty of point-of-view, and dark humor round out the book’s atmosphere.

TRAVELING IN THE DIRECTION OF THE SHADOW
(Second Revised Edition)


Publisher: Janet 45, Plovdiv 2014
Language - Bulgarian
Editor: Malina Tomova
Cover design: Yana Levieva
Number of pages: 312
ISBN - 978-619-186-052-4
Publication Date: August, 2014

TRAVELING IN THE DIRECTION OF THE SHADOW was originally published in Bulgarian in 2009 (followed by a revised edition in 2014) and has received critical acclaim and several nominations. It has been praised as one of the most innovative, compelling, erudite, idiosyncratic, and ambitious books to emerge out of the contemporary Bulgarian literary scene in recent years.
TRAVELING IN THE DIRECTION OF THE SHADOW is a story about storytelling—about stories’ power to mutually attract, to find their path towards each other, and to complete one another. The main characters, whose names serve as titles of the novel’s eight chapters, all have their own complete, cradle-to-grave “biography,” their own hidden, often torturous talent; they have all been marked by fate in their own way. Their lives meet on the thin and changing boundary between chance and purpose, between fiction and reality, where most important things usually happen. The narrator, a foreigner and collector of stories named Jan van Athen (and Iana Boukova’s writerly alter ego) joins the other characters as an equal without privileges: often comical in his insistence on fabricating even the most realistic fact, he is exposed along with all the others in the twists and turns of the narrative. Intellectually, stylistically, and conceptually, Boukova is in conversation with a global community of authors, brought together by translation and including Marguerite Yourcenar, Milorad Pavic, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Italo Calvino, Jorge Luis Borges, Olga Tokarczuk, Virginia Woolf, W. G. Sebald, Thomas Pynchon, Franz Kafka, Clarice Lispector, and Georges Perec, among others.

All that Yovana had left of him was a bite on her neck and an empty shirt. “Like a snake,” she said, after the first few months had passed. And though she said it to herself, the ‘s’ snapped like a whip and turned the scar violet. The shirt held an entire body inside itself, retained its outline through its scent, and at night slept next to her in the bed. But the shirt eventually gave up too, defeated by time, and nothing remained in it any longer. What could she do with a dead shirt but wash it and put it away in the trunk where it belonged, to never again take it out nor throw it out. The scar turned bloody every time she picked at it and tried to reproduce its crescent shape. Whenever silence fell, it pulsated in a rhythm different from that of her heart. It was a time without nights or days, with only a constant grayish light, hybrid, murky, foretelling no awakening. Yovana continued sleeping inside her body, which rose every morning and carried out its chores, and combing her hair until the comb almost broke. The days passed uncounted and unnamed, her blood kept track of the months, while the seasons kept track of themselves, two years, three years, three Easters, four Christmases. Until he suddenly cropped up where he had not been sown, with his shoes covered in foreign dust and his large hands hidden behind his back, as though he were holding a gift or a knife. And he said he had come to see her father. But she never found out what it was he had held, because there was no need, she said, she had already been promised to someone else.

χαράζουν ένα στόμα στον τοίχο
Μίλα! φωνάζουν
Κάθετα στο πεπρωμένο της παλάμης τους
κόβουνε τη γραμμή της τύχης

About the Book

Refusing to act also means giving up characters. The people are involved at best, but their identity is already disintegrated. The points of view diverge, the possible centers of the "narrative" are crossed out with subtle verbal anarchism. If all this sounds a little a la roman nouveau, then you probably have some reason.
Running away from the plot, from the history, from the structure, running away from literature in general, these texts still have a common basis and this is the special orchestral organization of the word. The rhythm of the images, their intertwining in an intricate neurotic dance, suggests that we are dealing with writing, which in its anti-literature relies on musical principles. Leitmotifs run through the canvas of the book; the sentences themselves here work more like musical phrases.

Self-Portrait on a Background of Begonias
for Monty Python

A ship sinks in the square
smoke still issuing
from its chimneys
Faces pressed against the windows
guzzle down the outward scene
Somebody sells ice-cream
Somebody else has clasped his mouth
holds on so strongly that if he let go
he would surely fall break into pieces

At night those sounds start up
the scratch of pencils the distant
hem of understanding
Sounds that make you turn on the lamp

About the book

Absinthe 24 pushes and prods Hellenism beyond its geographic and cultural comfort zones, and sets it tumbling off beyond both internal and external borders of its nation-state, in a wide-ranging but always site-specific and localized itinerary. At each stop along the way, this Greekness finds its plurals—hence the “Hellenisms” of the title. While they present no unified topography, tongue or even topic, these Hellenisms map out the contours of a shared conversation. Today’s Hellenism isn’t limited to Hellas, nor to the Hellenic language. The selected texts in this volume explore Greece from the perspective of visitors, displaced persons, and marginalized people looking in, or, conversely, from the perspective of locals striving to break out.

About the book

“Readers for whom the expression ‘foreign literature’ means the work of Canada’s Alice Munro stand to have their eyes opened wide and their reading exposure exploded as they encounter works from places such as Croatia, Bulgaria, and Macedonia (and, yes, from more familiar terrain, such as Spain, the UK, and Russia).” (Booklist, Starred Review)

“For one book to range so widely in geographical terms is a praiseworthy achievement in itself; to do so and encompass so many delightfully singular, fascinatingly overlapping talents is an achievement of another order." (Wall Street Journal)

About the book

"When there is less to go around, people fight, grab, get tough. Lately, Greece and the Balkans have been living with more than their share of less . . . Poetry, though, is one thing there is more of. Much more." —from the Introduction

The poets in [Austerity Measures] are young, most of them under forty, but they inherit a rich Greek tradition of writers who seize a position in public discourse….Poets may need to find new ways to remain attuned to enormous changes that no one can foresee completely. Austerity Measures offers some clues as to what might be carried forward and what might be left behind.

About the book

THE CATALOGUE Karaoke Poetry Bar is a multimodal installation which combines poetry, performance and video. The project involves several visual artists and poets and is based on the idea of reversal, i.e. of changing the function of a “space”, transforming it into a generator of possibilities, a playground of ideas. Participant artists and visitors are thus involved in the contingence of utopia.Karaoke Poetry Bar is a real although temporary karaoke bar where pop songs on the stage monitor have been replaced by poems written by Greek poets who have emerged within the last 10 years. During recitation, the poems await to be challenged by the audacity and the intentions of the audience.
