Bocksten

Pusterla, Fabio.

425 pusterla bockstenThe main character of this book of poetry is the Bocksten Man who was found 500 years after his death in a peat bog in Sweden. Three poles in his chest suggest a ritual killing. Pusterla uses this character to revive the suppressed and buried past, he gives this character his voice and lets it go in the unsafe terrain of darkness. The location of the dialogue with the dead is a moorland near the sea where the borders between water and land dissolve, an impassable terrain in which the nature presents itself as dark and ravaged. 

The book of poetry Bocksten by Fabio Pusterla has been translated to Croatian (excerpt) by Tvrtko Klarić and published under the title Bocksten by Felsina in Zagreb.
