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.

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 pluralshence 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. Todays Hellenism isnt 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

A discussion on Poetry Now: A collective book of essays where seven poets answer nine questions on contemporary poetics. The book deals with the relationship of poetry to public space, artistic form and aesthetic criteria. It also addresses the relationship with the ancestors, the construction of the self, poetry and knowledge, oratory, the body, historical and social circumstances, contemporary philosophy and theory, and the relationship of poetry with other forms of art.

About the book

"The 29 stories here are excellent and frequently brilliant, with none of the workshopped feel of so many of their American counterparts. Of interest to literary readers of English on both sides of the water." (Kirkus Reviews)
Readers for whom the expression foreign literature means the work of Canadas 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

Unsere Anthologie "Kleine Tiere zum Schlachten. Neue Gedichte aus Griechenland" stellt 29 griechische Dichter innen mit jeweils zwei Gedichten in Uebersetzung vor. Wie vielf?ltig und reichhaltig die neue griechische Dichterszene ist und welche Breite an Themen sie bearbeitet, zeigt dieses Buch. Auf der einen Seite behandelt sie die finanzielle und gesellschaftliche Krise, auf der anderen Seite ist aber auch ein ?sthetischer Aufbruch zu sp?ren, eine Erneuerung, die sowohl Traditionslinien wie neue Sprech-/Schreibweisen vereinigt.

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.

The Bulgarian poet Iana Boukova with her book The minimal garden, in a very good translation into greek by Dimitris Allos, has easily gained herself a place in contemporary greek poetry, transplanting memory in all things, honoring with affection what is hurt or hunted, being able to look beyond the future into mans adventure..Dino Siotis, (poet), (de)kata journal
