About the book:
In The Descendants of the Rose, Zmaj is a poet of hymnic and dithyrambic verses with prevailing serene feeling of the world imbued with a feeling of lasting happiness and unshakable love. "What a Wonderful World", it is the way it is spoken, in the first place, in these verses of vitalist happiness and a strong love passion.
In The Wilted Descendants of the Rose, Zmaj describes the world which darkened even love that ended in death. Thereby these verses are melancholic gathering of one past life and one irreversible love.
