Srečko Kosovel

Author:  Srečko Kosovel
Srečko Kosovel (1904-1926) was born in Sezana, spent his childhood in the neighbouring village of Tomaj, and was educated in Ljubljana. Often called the Slovenian Rimbaud, he is thought to have written over one thousand poems before his early death, although during his lifetime he published less than forty. Renowned initially for his impressionist lyrics of the Karst region above Trieste, the remarkable modernist component of his work began to be realised only forty years after his death.
