Lovestory: Agent and Patient

Lovestory: Agent and Patient

Martin Solotruk

The fourth poetry collection of Martin Solotruk is an interesting step towards a modern expression in contemporary Slovak poetry. The author is aware of the tradition and develops a number of the most inspiring impulses of poetics of the post-war period, especially the Concretist and the Lonely Runners.

After his previous explorations resulting in a "theory" of world, Solotruk studies a range of personal, though seemingly profane, living together with encyclopaedic knowledge of the world and ritualization of the everyday life experience in an effort to merge them into mythological patterns.
