The forty-four poems of Moss & Silver anticipate the radical environmentalism and animal rights activism of the 21st century while engaging in a passionate dialogue with wide array of poets from William Wordsworth to Kobayashi Issa. Although he often railed against the defenders of Slovene [traditional poetic] beauty and the tyranny of metaphor, Detela was a meticulous craftsman who employed a stunning variety of rhythms and stanzaic forms. Moss & Silver (Mah in srebro), originally published in 1983 by Obzorja (Maribor), is the first book of Jure Detela's poems to appear in English. This bilingual edition has been translated by Raymond Miller with Tatjana Jamnik, and includes an introduction by Slovenian poet and critic Iztok Osojnik and a translators afterword by Raymond Miller.
