Srečko Kosovel

Srečko Kosovel (1904-1926) one of Slovenia’s first modernists, is now considered one of Central Europe’s major modernist poets. In 1925 he prepared a manuscript for publication called The Golden Boat, but it was subsequently lost and never published. Soon after, he died of meningitis at the age of 22. His Complete Works was published in 1977. The Golden Boat, a selection of his poems translated into English by Bert Pribac and David Brooks, appeared in 2008 from Salt Press. Look Back, Look Ahead, Selected Poems of Srečko Kosovel, co-translated by Ana Jelnikar and Barbara Siegel Carlson (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2010) is the first U.S. edition of his work. An expanded edition is currently being prepared.
