Beasts takes the perspective of the educated and curious city dweller who ventures into the natural world. Krišjanis Zelgis focuses on the intriguing unpredictability of wild beasts to explore human nature, relationships, fear, and love. His poetry is dark, sometimes angry, often funny, capturing the entirety of the natural world in honest but delicate detail. Beasts is part of the Parthian Baltic project which was launched on time for the London Book Fair 2018.
