WHO WAS SREČKO KOSOVEL?

Srečko Kosovel, the so-called Slovenian Rimbaud, was a genius poet who died in 1926 only 22 years old. Today, Kosovel is considered one of central Europe’s major modernist poets whose poetry is still echoing as if it was contemporary and not, in fact, more than 100 years old.

Kosovel was an impressionistic poet, a political poet resisting fascism of the time, and expressionist, a Dadaist, a satirist, an avant-gardist using constructivist forms. With producing more than 1000 drafts, among them, 500 complete poems with unusually high quality for his age, today, Kosovel is considered the Slovenian poetic icon and an idol to many Slovenian artists and activists. He still is today very much alive in Slovenian culture and consciousness.
