Welcome to Croatian poetry - February 2004
Welcome to our web site dedicated to contemporary Croatian literary production. The aim of the site is to present and introduce Croatian poetry to readers in English and to become an online resource giving information on poets and poetry events in Croatia.
There is a vast array of forms and practices used by Croatian poets. Some Croatian poets write in free verse, others prefer playing with fixed forms inherited from tradition, some enjoy the unsentimental urban style crammed with colloquialisms, others rediscover a taste for emotion. Imagism, poetic narration, landscape poetry, lyrical prose, visual poetry, language poetry, vocal performance, slam, and most recently, what the youngest generation of local authors calls poetry jam – you can find all of that on our web site, and much more …
In our current issue, we present to you the poetry of Anka Zagar.
