Ivana Milankov was born in 1952, in Belgrade, Serbia. She is a translator of English and American poetry, including the work of Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath, W. B. Yeats, William Blake, and Allen Ginsberg. Accepting an invitation by Allen Ginsberg following his visit to Belgrade, Ivana took part in creative workshops at the Naropa Institute with Ginsberg and Ann Waldman in Boulder, Colorado.
Ivana Milankov belongs to the first generation of poets from central and eastern Europe who were influenced by anti-establishment poetries – particularly from the USA – such as the Beats and, later on, the New York poets.
