A collection celebrating the Centennial of seminal modernist Macedonian poet Aco Sopov. This substantive collection represents Sopov's creative career, starting with his first book of poetry in 1944, when he was fighting in the Yugoslav resistance to the German occupation. In the early 1950s, he published two collections that signaled a new direction for Macedonian poetry as a whole, announcing the arrival of new form "intimate lyricism". Over the next 25 years, Sopov's work deepened further, acquiring a philosophical cosmic dimension and at times venturing into surrealism. The Long Coming of the Fire shares the work of a consummate craftsman little-known in the Anglophone world, achieving a "penetrating, resonant, and melodic" poetic language with "a lively and pregnant imagery that binds together the experience of the author and reader" (Graham W. Reid).
