English Subject(s): Haderlap, Maja, 1961- -- Translations into English. Langer transit | Fellow | Berlin Prize Fellow | Class of Spring 2022Genre/Form: Poetry DDC classification: 831/.914 LOC classification: PT2668.A27372 | L3313 2022Summary: "Infused with movement, Maja Haderlap's distant transit traverses Slovenia's scenic landscape and violent history, searching for a sense of place within its evershifting boundaries. Avoiding traditional forms and pronounced rhythms, Haderlap unleashes a flow of evocative, captivating passages whose power lies in their associative richness and precision of expression, vividly conjuring Slovenia's natural world - its rolling meadows, snow-capped alps, and sparkling Adriatic coast. Belonging to the Slovene ethnic minority and its inherited, transgenerational trauma, Haderlap explores the burden of history and the prolonged aftershock of conflict - warm, lavish pastoral passages conceal dark memories, and musings on the way language can create and dissolve borders reveal a deep longing for a sense of home. At its core, distant transit is an ode to survival, building a monument to traditions and lives lost"-- Provided by publisher.
