When The Horse Has Six Legs was first published in 1992, as war and hatred tore through the Balkans, this anthology of Serbian poetry became a landmark for some of the most compelling poetry in the contemporary world. “The ironies, in 1993, of giving an award to Serbian poets will be evident to many,” Carolyn Kizer wrote in her judge’s citation for the Harold Morton Landon Translation Award. “But the glory of great poetry is that it transcends its time and these agonized events to enter the universal realm of art.”  Editor and translator Charles Simic has now updated and expanded this anthology for new readers in the twenty-first century. Now updated and expanded for new readers in the twenty-first century, Simic has brought together an extraordinary range of Serbian poets, from the oral tradition of folk song to the great postwar poets, including Vasko Popa, Ivan V. Lalic, and Novica Tadic, and the new generation of poets writing now. With wild imagination, mordant humor, and vivid surrealism, Serbian poetry is rich, haunted, and intensely relevant to the world we inhabit.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Horse Has Six Legs

"Charles Simic has performed a great service by reminding us, precisely at this moment of turmoil and destruction, that ‘there are still poets and beautiful poems to be discovered and read with lasting pleasure in this vile old world.’”—Stanislaw Baranczak, The New Reublic
 
"The Horse Has Six Legs is one of the most vivid and surprising books of translation I know. It reveals the continuum that exists between the oral and the literary, between the wit of folktale and the extremity of surrealism. In these poems one feels the freshness, force, and impunity of culture as we no longer have it—at once very deeply rooted and very international.”—Tony Hoagland
