Menu for the devil – Aleksandar Ristovic

Aleksandar Ristovic (1933-1994) is a Serbian poet whose sole book in English, Devil’s Lunch, was translated by Serbian-American poet Charles Simic and published in 1999. At Harriet, the blog of the Poetry Foundation poet Jeffrey McDaniel provides a mouth watering introduction to Ristovic’s work by taking readers through the title poem “Devil’s Lunch.”

For more on Ristovic there is a brief review at the Kenyon Review, an even briefer review at the Boston Review (scroll down) and another poem posted on the blog Looking for the Magic.
