Vinko Ošlak – COME AND SEARCH

Slovenian writer Vinko Ošlak (1947) started his literary journey as a poet. In 1970s his collection of poetry A Seizmograph of Emotions was published by Horizons publishers. Within the series Poetic Leaves featuring paintings by Jože Tisnikar Mladinska knjiga published Ošlak’s cycle of poems. At a certain stage of his creation, Ošlak shifted his interest towards prose, essays and philosophical and theological writing. A collection of poems Come and Search was written in a classical sonnet form, and Ošlak’s poems are not merely a playfulness of words but also an emotional and contemplative message addressed to the readers. Ošlak’s poem is true to a minor, more fragile being suffering from the injustice and for whom the nature is not inclined to. Ošlak’s collection is permeated with Christian ethos and stand views through Gospels, just like his other works, both in prose and poetry.
