Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the Macedonian by Charles Simic. THE BANDIT WIND draws from several of Slavko Janevski’s books–the poems are wide-ranging, moving fluidly and powerfully through traditional folk-poem motifs into tightly wrought contemporary imagery in free verse. His poems teem with Hieronymmous Bosch-like strange creatures composed of bits and pieces of men, animals and inanimate objects.
