Novica Tadic was born in 1949 and has lived most of his life in Belgrade. The author of fourteen previous collections of poetry, he is the most-respected living Serbian poet, and the linguistic "heir" to Vasko Popa. His collections include, The Object of Ridicule, Monster, and The Unknown. Tadic has won most major Serbian literary awards including the Laureat Nagrade. Poet, prose writer, editor, translator, anthologist, Charles Simic is acting Poet Laureate of the United States, and recipient of the Wallace Stevens Award from The Academy of American Poets, the Griffin Poetry Prize, and the Pulitzer Prize, among others. His 29th poetry collection, That Little Something, was published by Harcourt in February 2008.

Novica Tadic is Serbia’s leading poet and the linguistic heir to Vasko Popa. With this translation, US Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize–winner Charles Simic brings the full range of Tadic’s dark beauty to light:

I dream how on a flat surface
I set down knives of various
shapes and sizes.
Already there are so many of them
I can’t count them,
or see them all. Someone’s being done in
by those knives.

Novica Tadic has won most major Serbian literary awards, including the prestigious Laureat Nagrade. Charles Simic’s latest poetry collection is That Little Something (Harcourt, 2008).
