The seventh in Arc’s New Voices from Europe and Beyond series of anthologies, Six Macedonian Poets features the work of three men and three women – Elizabeta Bakovska (b. 1969), Lidija Dimkovska (b. 1971), Bogomil Gjuzel (b. 1939), Igor Isakovski (b. 1970), Jovica Ivanovski (b. 1961) and Katica Kulavkova (b. 1951) – who have helped to shape the face of contemporary Macedonian poetry over the past five decades. Translated by a range of highly-regarded translators, selected by Igor Isakovski, the editor of Macedonia’s leading online literary magazine Blesok, with an introduction by Ana Martinoska, this volume is a window on the poetry of one of Europe’s least-known and most intriguing ‘corners’. This is a bilingual edition, with the Macedonian original and the English translation on facing pages. The author of the cover artwork is Miroslav Masin.
