Frisky Ducks and Other Poems free pdf About Mario Relich poetry: 'There is nothing provincial about the poems in Mario Relich collection. Local at times, yes, with evocations of the poet's various home bases, but as the likes of William Carlos Williams and Patrick Kavanagh would remind us, the local is the universal. ( - ) This poet is of both the Old World and the New, intensely European in his range of cultural references, but also transatlantic, whether evoking family and university life in Montreal or verbally transcribing, as it were, a postcard depicting the Civil War memorial in Hartford, Connecticut, and linking this with that city's poet Wallace Stevens, himself redolent of European imagination and American experience. ( - ) It's chiefly in the poems about birds - one type, of course, is the source of the book's title - that we witness, in Muriel Spark's phrase, 'the transfiguration of the commonplace'. (from Tom Hubbard's Introduction)

About Mario Relich

Born in Zagreb, Mario Relich grew up in Montreal, Canada, where he obtained his MA in English Literature from McGill University. He did his post-graduate studies at Edinburgh University, leading to a Ph.D. thesis on philosophical dialogue during the Enlightenment, and has lived in Edinburgh most of his life. His parents - Canadian citizens - were originally from Croatia and Italy. He has been an Associate Lecturer in English Literature and Film Studies at the Open University in Scotland for many years, which led to his involvement as a member of the Open History Society in Scotland, latterly as committee chairman. He has also taught at the Edinburgh College of Art, Napier University, and the University of Ife, Nigeria. He has contributed articles and reviews to, among other publications, Scottish Affairs, Lines Review, Scottish Review of Books, West Africa, and to The Scotsman, for which he did theatre reviews when Allen Wright was Arts Editor. His interview with Iain Crichton Smith was published in Edinburgh Review, and his articles on Sharon Olds and the American critic and poet Adam Kirsch in The Dark Horse. He contributed essays on Hamish Henderson for At Hame Wi' Freedom: Essays on Hamish Henderson (Grace Note Publications, 2012) and on Alexander Trocchi for View from Zollernblick: Regional Perspectives in Europe (Grace Note Publications, 2013). His essay on Robert Lowell and other poet-translators of Baudelaire was published in Critical Insights: The Poetry of Baudelaire, edited by Tom Hubbard (Salem Press, Grey House Publishing, 2014). He began writing poems in Canada, an interest which was reinforced by attending Robert Garioch
