A Contribution to the Biography of Fran Valenčič (1878-1916)
The author focuses on the life and fate of a lesser known Slovenian poet Fran Valenčič (1878-1916), a contemporary of the main representatives of the Slovenian modernist poetry. He explores the poet's contacts with the greatest Slovenian writers of the time (Cankar, Kette, etc.), his activities in the literary field (including the works published in literary magazines), his retreat into private life, and tragic death during World War I in the ranks of the Austro-Hungarian Army. The author tries to explain the role he had in certain literary circles in a specific period and partly also the reasons why the poet has not become more distinctively recognised in a wider social context.
