PROVINCES by Kiril Vasilev
Kiril Vasilev’s book Provinces gravitates somewhere between a post-Christian, metaphysical understanding of the world, as described by the critic and poet Ani Ilkov, and the topos not as a centre, but a periphery that has become endless and appeals not for modernity, but for compassion for the death of a human being. This book stands out because of the aesthetics of its stanza, measure, appearance and relevance. It floods abundantly and heavily like the lower current of a river whose alluvium can change even the colour of the sea. A book which will undoubtedly also change our daily routine and point of view.
