My multilingual poetry collection ‘Reveries about language’ in English, French & Croatian is now out! The collection is printed for Language Acts and World Making under the imprint of the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, King’s College London (ISBN: 978-1-897747-36-0).
“With its startling imagery, fluid exploration of form and multi-lingual approach to poetry, Reveries About Language is a quest into a poet’s own heart of darkness through which the colour and light of new realizations and thought-provoking ideas are refracted. At times gentle, in others brutal, it can be read as both a love letter and written warning that marks the ways language can propel an individual across the barriers of identity, time and space, and raises a question about how far each of us is at the mercy of words. An refreshingly unapologetic book from a striking new voice.” (Helen Cox, Poetrygram)
The collection contains both my poetry and my photography (with book design by Dejan Kršić). To access some of the poems included, see below:
The rose of Algiers / Alžirska ruža / La rose d’Alger

The stranger / Strankinja / L’étrangère

Most of the poems in this collection were performed on the 20. March, Pinter Studio, Queen Mary University of London, as part of the multimedia poetry performance ‘Reveries about language’.
