About the Author

CHARLES SIMIC, by virtue of his Yugoslav background and his position as a celebrated contemporary American poet, is ideally situated to be translator for Popa. His years of work on Popa have brought his versions to a pitch of perfection rarely achieved in the translation of poetry. Simic’s own most recent collections are Selected Poems and Unending Blues.
