Red Isohypses of War

Ivan Koprić's collection of poetry Red Isohypses of War contains 64 thematically and stylistically uniformed poems whose common denominator is the fear of death, disappearance, meaninglessness, futility and the end. The poems were created during the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, after the devastating earthquake in Zagreb and central Croatia, and the health, security and energy problems and crises associated with these events, which show relentless resilience.

Book of the month

The Devil is in the Detail

Ahead of the third Rhythm&Book with Nikolina Borčić as a guest, on which occasion she will present her book The Devil is in the Detail, the book of May is this excellent book.

From the review of doc. dr. sc. Ivona Čulo:

The author's main intention is to encourage the public to discuss the methods and possibilities of creating a political image and managing it. Encouraging individuals to think critically about the political image affects the expectations of the quality of public communication in Croatia. Conscious citizens recognize not only ambiguous communication and manipulation, but value and content based on verifiable data and results, and consequently set higher standards for politicians regarding the quality of communication. In the age of the global trend of trivialization and ostracization of politics, this book stands as a reminder of the power of language in creating and deconstructing images.
