THE BOOK OF THINGS

translation of Knjiga reči

A word does not exist for every thing. -Slovenian dictionary

Štegers fourth book, Knjiga reči (The book of things), is the ideal introduction to his work for English readers. Published in Slovenia in 2005, the book consists of 50 poems-a proem folloved by seven sections of seven poems each. The books careful architecture is reflected in the poems themselves, most of which are composed in couplets, tercets, or quatrrains, a departure from Štegers largely stanzaless poems in his previous books. (Brian Henry)
