Editorial Reviews

"Bruno Schulz said: 'The sublime nature of the divine order...can be rendered only by the power of human negation.' He was speaking of Kafka's feel for the boundaries of the human and the divine. Tadic has the same feel. He composes anti-poems, anti-psalms, anti-prayers. Such complexity in poems that are almost exclusively very short! In my view, he is one of the most original and interesting poets today." - Charles Simic
