Many pieces of work from Detela’s opus comprise his so called avant-garde literature – mostly experimental, with a touch of symbolical, grotesque, fictional, Luddite and occasionally almost hermetic expressionist elements he uses to transform human existential and fundamental dilemmas into words, in his particular ways. These structures feature most of Detela’s poetry. In all of these stages, so different and in many ways utterly opposed levels of Detela’s poetic development, the author has experienced a whole range of discernible individual characteristics of his whole opus up to the present. In terms of topics they substantially exhibit a critical strip down of a society and an individual, whereas in terms of structure and style they feature the shocking and the provocative that keep turning into new extreme images in each stimulating and aesthetic stage of author’s creational process. It is exactly these most prominent features of Detela’s poetic creation that, in some of his works comprising for example Greek Poems, turn to more intimate, somewhat subdued and more sophisticated shades of his very colourful polyphony of his poetry. Greek Poems witness to author’s new poetic procedures as in 2008 Detela published four books in Slovenian language – a novel in two volumes and two books of poetry. This collection of poetry is a kind of a sequel (mostly in terms of the content, not so much in terms of the expression) of his previous collection The Light on the Crimson Shore as it was similarly created on a journey and partly in Vienna in later stages as a reflection of poet’s experiences while vacationing in Greece. Most of the poems in the collection are of ambient and reflexive nature, whereas some border onto miniature essays shaped into poems (The Donkey), while others pour over author’s emotional and reflexive impressions to visual stimuli from his immediate environment into poems.
