Copati za hojo po Kitajski

Zupan, Uroš.

zupan_copatiThe collection of poems in this volume follow various patterns: sometimes they describe different circumstances, atmospheres and suggestions, sometimes they deal with daily events, which, filtered through dreams, expose the mechansims of our world in a surrealistic way, sometimes they seem to follow Williams’ maxim "no ideas except for in things". Despite the heterogeneity the poet succeeds in describing the basic experiences of people in an innovative and convincing way.

Copati za hojo po Kitajski [Slippers for Hiking around China in] by Uroš Zupan has been published as a bilingual volume of poetry under the title Papuče za pješačenje Kinom, published by Lara, Zagreb. Translated from the Slovenian into Croatian by Ksenija Premur (excerpt).
