The various representations of the Wild West in the poetic debuts of Dragan Jurak (Horses and their riders, 1994), Robert Perišić (Castle America, 1995) and Damir Radić (Bobcat hunting, 1999), are portrayed through film, graphic novels and literary discourse. Fleeing, wandering and traveling are observed on multiple levels: from thematic – motivational and multi medial, to political – ethical. The analysis of the poetic practices of these three authors showed an extreme problem in dividing form from content. The dilemmas in the analytical approach of previous critical reviews of these poetic collections come from the post – modernist script, which is a common denominator for all three collections. Since postmodernism greatly changes the position of modern poetry in relation to other literary and cultural practices, it emphasizes the need for redefining the terminological and classifying apparatus through which modern croatian poetry is described.
