At the same time, the book represents a deep poetic and critical-essayistic immersion in Kastel’s poetic work published in the previous decade by 37 authors from Montenegro and the region, thus becoming the younger thematic sister of the book ‘Mediterranean Lord’ “. signs Gina Bajcetadirector of the library. In the conversation, Castel states that since the first book published in 1994, his friendship and devotion to the Mediterranean, its and the inner sea and enlightenment have lasted. “It simply came to our notice then. And it will be tomorrow. The authors and, why not say, the participants in this poetry knew this, and how. I am extremely happy and proud that 37 selected poets, essayists and literary theorists have sailed and are sailing with me on the brigantine ‘Mediterranean’. The crew, therefore, lived and recorded all my horizons, insomnia, doubts, lightning and whistling, sextants and portals, Scylla and Charybdis, raising and lowering anchors from the Pillars of Hercules to Asia Minor, from olive groves in the north to palm trees in the south, endless cruises and a reflection in the indigo of the Mediterranean, that eternal sea to itself and eternal, ”wrote Castel. He thanked his interlocutors and “erudites from the deck”, as well as the library directors who “became a kind of chicken of this poetic ship”, and recommended readers to “prepare home furniture for building sailboats and shirts for sewing sails”.
