Srečko Kosovel

Srečko Kosovel (1904–1926) is a Slovenian poet, essayist and journalist, and one of the most important Slovenian artists of the 20th century. He studied Slavic and Roman Studies and Philosophy at the University of Ljubljana. His works published in numerous magazines and literary recited at meetings. He died of meningitis at the age of twenty-two years before he could issue his debut poetry collection The Golden Boat (Zlati čoln). Most of his work was published posthumously, the most innovative texts (the konses and integrals) were published only in 1967 (edited by Anton Ocvirk). Kosovel poems, falling in the avant-garde art direction, such as Constructivism, Dadaism, Futurism, and Surrealism, have a major impact on contemporary Slovenian art, and his wish that humanity give back the rank of the highest value, is not fading nowadays.
