"Nikola Madzirov's poems move mysteriously by means of a profound inner concentration, giving expression to the deepest laws of the mind. Their linguistic 'making' is informed by a vivid evidence of a serious self-making, soul-making, and heart-making. We are lucky to have these English incarnations of Nikola Madzirov."
"Madzirov's poems are like Expressionist paintings: filled with thick, energetic streaks they seem to emerge from the imagination and to return to it right away, like night animals caught in the headlights of a car. Nikola Madzirov succeeds in convincing us, 'We are the remnants of another age.' We better watch this talented poet!"
“The characters who people his poems are half the time in transit, in flight, and half the time already gone. There is a sense of autumnal winsomeness yet also a feeling of natural suspense in his work
His poems, though short, are deep, sturdy, robust creations. After reading four or five, one may feel as if in the midst of something grandsomething of a heavy tome rather than this book of only 104 pages.”
"Companionable, deja-vu-ish, at once embodied and disembodied, these are poems that know ‘Not one illicit digger so far / has found the walls between us ’ Born of both gravitas and yearning, they know how to float."—Poetry International
