International conference on (Kosovel and the) political truth of poetr

from 11th to 15th March 2011
in Škocjan in Karst and Ljubljana, Slovenia

Bogdan Macarol: Srečko Kosovel je pisal politične pesmi (Primorske novice, 14. 3. 2011)

The symposium’s main theme will be a special understanding of the political, which is revealed by the structured nature of the poetic text as a social commitment, or the intersection of the political and poetic (aesthetic) in poetry. This intersection was realized in Slovenia in a radical—yet simultaneously aesthetically extremely imaginative— form, in the poetry of Srečko Kosovel, a political poet par excellence.
