A dynamic artist at the height of his poetic powers, Tadić presents to the reader a world that is at once surreal and hauntingly familiar, a world of outlandish encounters and uncanny creatures. His poetry addresses the challenges of surviving as an artist in a Communist society, and themes of victimization, oppression and spiritual pollution permeate much of his work. Assembly is a gently subversive and mischievous collection, a harrowing yet humanizing work that is a stunning testimony to Tadić's outstanding abilities as an artist.
