Ales_Steger

Aleš Šteger was born in 1973 in Ptuj (p-too-ee), Slovenia, where he grew up, then part of the former Yugoslavia ruled by Tito, which gained its independence when he was 18. He published his first collection at the age of 22, Chessboard of Hours in 1995, and was immediately recognised as a key voice in the new generation of post-Communist poets not only in Slovenia but throughout central Europe. He has published seven books of poetry, three novels and two books of essays, and his work has been translated into over 15 languages, including English, with translations – mostly by Brian Henry – including The Book of Things (BOA Editions, US, 2010), Essential Baggage (Equipage, 2016), Above the Sky Beneath the Earth (White Pine Press, US, 2019), The Book of Bodies (White Pine Press, US, 2022) and Burning Tongues: New & Selected Poems (Bloodaxe Books, UK, 2022).
