Dells and Hollows

Dells and Hollows

Poems by Marjan Strojan translated from the Slovenian by the author with an introduction by Sydney Lea

“I suppose that to possess a spirit such as Strojan’s may be something of an ordeal. Fixities and definites — the sorts of constructs that we rely on as bourgeois — are forever collapsing before him. Continuity, to use his own term n this  book], must be a chimera, and although I can testify at first hand to  the poet’s suavity, aplomb, and sense of humor as a social being, there  is a way in which, given his sensitivity and perspicacity, he seems  almost an alien among so-called ‘normal’ human beings.”

Sydney Lea
