"...were taken not very serious......" [Srečko Kosovel 18th March 2012]


Above image - "......Srečko Kosovel (About this sound pronunciation (help·info)) (18 March 1904 – 26 May 1926) was a Slovene expressionist poet who evolved towards avant-garde forms. Since the 1960s, Kosovel has become a poetic icon, in the league of the most prestigious Slovene literates like France Prešeren and Ivan Cankar. Alongside Edvard Kocbek, he is considered as the most important Slovene poet of the post-World War I period. He produced an impressive body of work of more than 1000 poems with a quality regarded as unusually high for his age. Most of his works were published almost four decades after his early death........" - URL:

.....Here are also a copy of Lepa Vida, of Gruda, of Mladina , then also some of his writings and albums of memories. On the walls portraits: the father, the mother, Srečko, Karmela, the grandfather from Tomaj and Trubar, which have been painted by the husband of Karmela.....” [excerpt].

Karmela was one of the Srečko's sisters. The other two were Anica and Antonija. Then a brother, Stane. The excerpt comes from an interview of summer 1984 with Antonija/Tončka by prof. Nada Pertot who visited the sister in the same birth village of Tomaj and described the objects of the memory still conserved by the sister. Published at page 17 in the book Mon cher ami: unpublished letters to Srečko Kosovel [above image: front cover of the book]. Gorica: Goriška Mohorjeva družba, 2007. Page seventeen like that 1517. [Goriška Mohorjeva družba is the publishing house founded under the suggestion of Maribor archbishop Anton Martin Slomšek when the church of Rome re-built the Slovenian nation, a nation “born from the Catholic thought” (doc Janko Kralj)].


...Lepa Vida is a beautiful eponymous main character of folk ballads. The episode has always been at the center of Slovenian creative attention, as evidenced by the forty-three treatments in our area, it is engaged by the most important Slovenian author France Preseren and Ivan Cankar. Collector of folk material Štrekelj Charles enumerated six different versions, Milko Matičetov found it also in Resia valley.
Reason for the popularity of the design is primarily a story about the deeper truths of our existence. From this he derived his resilience in the past and it is certainly appropriate perspective for the future...” [Wikipedia].

...Gruda magazine subtitled Monthly for People (rural) Education was the organ of the Union (Association) of Peasant Boys and Girls (ZKFiD). Printed in Ljubljana from 1924 to 1941, over the life of ZKFiD....” [Wikipedia].

....Mladina is a Slovenian weekly left-wing current affairs magazine. It was first published in the 1920s as the youth magazine of the Slovenian Communist Party.[1] Since then, Mladina has become a voice of protest against those in power, now printed weekly throughout the country, making it one of the most influential political magazines in the country....”. [Wikipedia].

"......From the end of 1925, he was also involved collages of newspaper clippings, repainted ironically, an example of this is the "flying boat" ("Leteča ladja"), but this work of his club were taken not very serious, such as Ivo Grahor and Alfonz Gspan deliver (see Vrecko, 231)........"

Censoring also artistic creations??!!! Are we arrived at such point???!!


........He returned to his home village in the Kras to cure himself, but died on 26 May 1926. He was buried on 29 May 1926. His coffin was adorned with a ribbon with the colours of the Slovene flag placed on it. The Italian Carabinieri, who had been present at the burial to prevent any "nationalist" outburst, threatened to exhume the coffin to remove the ribbon but this did not occur.......

Your heart is white

since ancient ages,

It is like a piece of stone. -

It is white, white

at the moonlight.



from your eyes

in the quite evening

and, watch,

we are the remains of a fire,

ancient cemetery,

within us it shines

only chaos.

I am not a prostitute lay journalist of this dirty Vatican 'tollerant' regime called 'democracy'. I have not the 51% of the Bank of America supporting my writings. I don't control the Casinò of Ostenda and neither Citroen and Peugeot as the General Superior did at least in 1958. So corrections and additions could appear in the future)
