Nova Istra - Literary and Cultural Journal No. 3/2005.

The second international literary meeting 'Pula Essay Days' was held last autumn. Some eminent literary experts dealt with the usual topic 'Essay on Essay' whereas a special session was on 'Town-Essay'. This issue thus includes contributions of all the participants.
‘Nova Istra’, for the first time in Croatia and for the first time in Croatian, presents the anthology of Kurdish poetry, accompanied by some cultural-historical comments and notes.
The last section, richly illustrated, contains the texts on modern and post-modern architecture, with special reference to the architecture of rationalism.
