Psalms and Cycles by prof.dr. Janko Ferk is a peculiar collection of poems, bringing, like biblical psalms and their eternal wisdom, profoundly vivid and impressing poetic images of eternal concepts of life, love and death. Their straightforwardness, with no redundant verbalisation and poetic patina, is their most impressive feature piercing directly into the transparency of poetic figures which plainly and directly address the eternal issues of human existence. And like the Bible, that infinite and unceasing source of inspiration and comfort, it sends an invitation to the readers: embrace the life, which is also the final verse of this above all valuable and spiritual collection of poems, inspiring and inducing any reader who reaches for this book to contemplate. Not only do we find the inspiration of Ferk’s opus in perennial philosophy where the author finds his source of traditional poetry at a universal level, but he also impresses us with the ease and wisdom he weaves into every verse, every stanza, and every poem. This is author’s poetic credo, and in this book he unfolds in a multilayered fan of deep meanings and everlasting questions about the human existence, as well as the eternal pursuit of the purpose and meaning of existence.
