Description

Jack Gilbert (1925–2012) is a major American poet of the second half of the 20th century, now translated into Slovene and Croatian for the first time. The bilingual edition consist of 35 poems, selected from his opus and following his five books, from Views of Jeopardy (1962) to The Dance Most of All (2009). Born in Pittsburgh, Gilbert spent most of his life living outside the USA, across Europe (Italy, Greece, France, England, Denmark) and in Japan. Drawing on autobiography, diverse intellectual influences and landscapes, Gilbert's poetry captures, with stark precision, the whole gamut of human emotion, typically blurring the lines between the material and immaterial. His poetic witnessing engages and often reinterprets ancient Greek myths, Chinese poetry as well as English literary classics, while his interweaving of the sacred and the profane, the elevated and the quotidian, stands apart from any facile postmodern eclecticism, being more attuned to the new materialist turn in social sciences and humanities, whereby meaning is seen to be generated interactively between human agents and matter.

Introduced by Lora Tomaš, the book marks an important contribution both to literary history and humanities at large.
