    http://www.mytwostotinki.com/?p=679 Some time ago I introduced the Bulgarian poet Vladislav Hristov here with some examples of his poetic craft. As regular readers of this blog will know already, I take a particular interest in Bulgarian literature and am frequently reviewing books by Bulgarian authors who deserve it to be read also outside their country. In the field of poetry it seems that Bulgaria has an abundance of talents, but the same goes also for the short prose. And with Georgi Gospodin http://www.mytwostotinki.com/?p=679 Some time ago I introduced the Bulgarian poet Vladislav Hristov here with some examples of his poetic craft. As regular readers of this blog will know already, I take a particular interest in Bulgarian literature and am frequently reviewing books by Bulgarian authors who deserve it to be read also outside their country. In the field of poetry it seems that Bulgaria has an abundance of talents, but the same goes also for the short prose. And with Georgi Gospodinov Bulgaria has now a writer that "plays in the Premier League" of World Literature - when this sporty metaphor is allowed in this context. Today I want to share a few poems by another poet of the younger generation in Bulgaria: Emanuil A. Vidinski. Like Vladislav Hristov, Vidinski is not only creative as a poet. He writes also prose, has published a novel and is the translator of Gottfried Benn and Paul Celan in Bulgarian language. Together with fellow poets Peter Tchouhov and Ivan Hristov, he founded the band Gologan. Recently he founded another band, Par Avion, together with his colleague Peter Tchouchov. The samples of his poetry are from the slender booklet Par Avion (in Bulgarian language) and give a good idea about his major topics. I let them speak for themselves: “NO.” doesn’t cry in public doesn’t complain doesn’t sulk at the table doesn’t talk about herself doesn’t faint and doesn’t call 911 doesn’t go to a psychologist doesn’t cut her veins doesn’t dramatize herself doesn’t stop working doesn’t sink into alcohol doesn’t give in to desperation doesn’t fake happiness doesn’t force laughter doesn’t keep silent on purpose doesn’t feel aggression doesn’t feel pity doesn’t give up smoking doesn’t change herself doesn’t take a vacation doesn’t hitchhike doesn’t bear an artificial loneliness doesn’t surround herself with people doesn’t start writing poems doesn’t listen to music differently doesn’t keep a diary doesn’t stop reading doesn’t cease making love doesn’t lose pleasure doesn’t give up enjoyment doesn’t miss out on joy doesn’t bar her laughter doesn’t long to abscond doesn’t run away doesn’t speak of herself doesn’t sulk at the table doesn’t complain just sometimes feels an overwhelming desire to disappear into her palms (translated by Katerina Stoykova-Klamer) ------------------ Малка смърт не мога да си спомня мириса ти просто не мога Little death can't remember your scent I just can't ------------------ винаги когато цъфнат липите си припомнят детството до охлузенотo ти коляно тam прочете тam потече и оттогава не спря да вали whenever the linden trees blossom I recall childhood till your injured knee there I read there I flow and since then it has not stopped to rain ----------------- The following poem sums up in a few lines the collective feeling of probably many people in South-Eastern Europe: Балканите са балконът на Европа На него понякога излизат eвропейците да се порадват малко на гледката преди отново да влязат в подредените си стаи The Balkans are the balcony of Europe Sometimes step on it the Europeans to take for a little while pleasure in the view before re-entering their orderly rooms (all other translations by Thomas Hübner) The translation "NO." is taken from the anthology The Season of Delicate Hunger that collects 197 poems by 32 contemporary Bulgarian authors. When you want to have an overview about the contemporary poetry in Bulgaria, then this is the book for you.

    I've read a few of these poems in original. Reading them in English, however, made me realize how universal contemporary Bulgarian poetry is. Katerina Stoykova-Klemer's translations mediate unintrusively, smoothly. A rich collection, representative of the best Bulgarian poets writing today. Enjoyable! As an example, here is a short poem by Kristin Dimitrova: The Fog Surrounding Creation God made Adam out of mud, digging a hole. This hole, the size of Adam, is the shadow’s first container.

Adam’s shadow is the price of his existence. God knows what the gain is.

    The Season of Delicate Hunger contains 32 contemporary Bulgarian poets and their poems. Some poems are sad, some funny, some long and some are short. With so many different voices there are a vast amount of unique poems. This was a very enjoyable read. I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
