The eighth 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, and introduced by the editor of Macedonia’s leading online literary magazine Blesok, 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.

"Such books - such poets - are I suppose a kind of immigration, welcomed by Arc, voices on the page free to come amongst us. Welcome."
