About the book

The Doors of No Return is Boris A Novak’s magnum opus, a verse epic consisting of three books – Maps of Nostalgia, The Time of the Fathers, and The Dwelling Places of Souls, comprising 45,000 verses on 2,300 pages of the original edition. Each book is a world of its own and can be read separately, but they are connected by the same protagonists and stories, shown from three different perspectives; together they form a higher and broader totality.

This edition contains selected fragments of the epic, translated by the author with Michael Biggins.

Maps of Nostalgia is an atlas of memory, a gigantic geography of the places where the poet or his ancestors have lived, that they have touched, and that they have abandoned and lost. The Time of the Fathers is the epic core of Novak’s “poetic madness” telling the tragic stories of his ancestors. The narrative framework of The Dwelling Places of Souls is tan ocean voyage to the North; where the ship’s cargo turns out to be Souls, Memory, History and its essence – a Story …

Boris A. Novak

Boris A. Novak (r. 1953) je pesnik, dramaturg, urednik, esejist, prevajalec in literarni teoretik. Velja za enega najpomembnejših slovenskih pesnikov, mojstra pesniških oblik, ki je od svojih avantgardnih začetkov do danes preizkusil ogromen nabor oblik iz evropske tradicije, precej pa jih je izumil tudi sam. S svojo poezijo uveljavlja maksimo, da »pomen zveni in zven pomeni«, načelo, ki ga uveljavlja tudi v svoji poeziji za otroke, dramatiki in prevodih. Izdal je že več kot petdeset knjig, številne so prevedene v tuje jezike (v knjižni obliki objavljene v ZDA, Franciji, na Hrvaškem in v BiH).

Aprila 2017 je izšla tretja, zadnja knjiga več kot 40.000 verzov obsežnega epa Vrata nepovrata, ki velja za Novakov opus magnum. Nedolgo zatem je bil profesor Novak imenovan za izrednega člana Slovenske akademije znanosti in umetnosti v razredu za umetnosti.
