Collection of poetry by a legendary personality of the Riga beatnik generation, Imants Tilbergs, always signing his work by the abbreviation „imt”. Producer and designer of the collection is Ilmārs Blumbergs, a well-known Latvian artist and the author’s friend. The collection contains only a small part of Tilbergs’ poems which can be compared to an intellectual flash – they are short in form yet full of spiritual insights.
Imants Tillbergs was born in Riga, living all his life in his childhood house in Maskavas suburb. He has graduated from the Faculty of Law of the Latvian University in 1963. Hitherto his only publication was several poems translated from Polish and published in a weekly Literatūra un Māksla (Literature and Art).
