SCIPIONE – Poems and Drawings

Scipione (Gino Bonichi) of Italy, born in 1904, died at the age of 29 of tuberculosis. His work was included in Lirici nuovi, the path-breaking anthology of 1943, despite the fact he published only ten poems in his life. His drawings reflected the oscillation between sensuality and religious transcendence that was, and remains, so fresh in his poetry.

DANE ZAJC – Scorpions

Dane Zajc of Slovenia was born in 1929. He has published some 24 books of poetry, and more than a half-dozen of his plays have been produced. Poems in translation have appeared in Contemporary Yugoslav Poetry (1977), Les livres slovène (1982), and Ashes, translated by Michael Biggins and Michael Scammel (1990). He published his first poem in 1948, and in 1951, because of “verbal offence,” was sentenced to three months in jail. He was then sent to serve military duty. “A person,” he has said, “can never get rid of the pictures of his first solitary confinement.” He persevered and never stopped writing poetry. In the ’80s he was awarded the “Goranov vijenac” (Goran’s Wreath) and the Great Preseren Award.
