Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between 1970 and 1974, Moikom Zeqo wrote a collection of poems called Meduza that challenged the core tenets of Albanian socialist realism. When samples were published, Zeqo’s work was denounced as "hermetic, with modern influences, dangerous, [and] foreign.” Meduza was suppressed until 1995, after the collapse of the Albanian communist system. I Don’t Believe in Ghosts gathers the best and most translatable poems from Meduza.

Moikom Zeqo is Albania's former minister of culture and directed Albania’s National History Museum. He now works as a freelance writer and journalist in Tirana.

Wayne Miller teaches at the University of Central Missouri, where he co-edits Pleiades.
