Frozen Rats of Sarajevo
Drago Stambuk was born on the island of Brac in the Adriatic. He has published seven books of poetry in his native Croatian tongue and is becoming recognised as one of the leading Croatian poets. He completed his medical studies in Zagreb and has mostly worked in the Aids field since his arrival in London in 1983. He has just been appointed Minister Plenipotentiary at the Croatian Embassy here. This poem was written after the BBC's Bookmark programme on the Serbian Epics.
The Daily Poem this week features a work suggested or provoked by events in Bosnia.Reuse content
