Paintings, a collection of prose poems, brings Segalen’s descriptions of imaginary Chinese visual art: thereby a dialogue is opened not only between different cultures, but also between different artistic media. The reader wanders around these foreign, strange places, sometimes lost, sometimes amazed but is always lead forwards by Segalen’s virtuoso writing.
Mala zvona brings the first integral Croatian translation of this poetic masterpiece.
Integral text of the famous poetry collection “Steles” by Vicotr Segalen, one of the classic works of French modernism, for the first time in the Croatian translation, with new calligraphies of Chinese epigrams. Translated by Stephane Michel, Senka Sedmak and Sanja Lovrenčić; calligraphied by Iva Valentić and Ming Sheng Pi.
