AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This is the second anthology of works by Croatian-Australian authors presented by the Croatian-Australian Literature & Art Association. It contains works by 16 authors, one of whom is a painter, one is a sculptor and one is a photographer. The selection was based on the authors' own choice. Their topics include nostalgic recollections of their former homeland, expressions of pain for its war-torn history and love for their mother tongue and simple love poems.
Each work is accompanied by a parallel translation into English.
