Poetry. Volume 5 of Berengarten's Selected Writings. Written during and after the disintegration of Yugoslavia, UNDER BALKAN LIGHT presents a complex vision of the Balkans that flinches from neither brutality nor beauty but honors dignity and courage. The book starts with a tour-de-force, the long poem Do vidjenje Danitsé (Goodbye Balkan Belle), and continues with a series of memorial tablets for victims of Jasenovac concentration camp. The book includes a sequence in memory of the Serbian, Yugoslav and Mediterranean poet, Ivan V. Lalic. UNDER BALKAN LIGHT forms the final part of Richard Berengarten's BALKAN TRILOGY and is published together with the first two parts, THE BLUE BUTTERFLY and IN A TIME OF DROUGHT.
