He was born in Nis, Serbia on 23 November 1937 – poet, publicist, travelogue writer and columnist. He lived and worked in Zagreb, Croatia for many years (1964-1982), in Belgrade, Serbia (1982-1985), and since 1985 he lives and works in Skopje. He is a member of the Writers’ Associations of Croatia and Serbia, of the Macedonian P.E.N. Centre and MASA, as well as the Macedonian Writers’ Association since 1961. In 1960, together with Bogomil Gjuzel, he published the manifesto The Epic of Voting (1960). In the spirit of the customs of the European literature movements, these two poets announced and elaborated their poetry through manifesto. What this poet did at the beginning with his poetry debut-collection Drought, Wedding and Moving (1961), and what many had not done before him, was the complete rejection of the forms of the traditional verse. Thus, he reduced his poem to its essence – its metaphoricality. It seems that such abundance in figurative language is unknown in any other Macedonian poet. However, this abundance can easily lead its poet to a trap, because such hyperproduction of figures-metaphores causes a negation of the multiple significance of a poem and in that context such figurativity is reduced to a metaphorical manner. Pavlovski with his collection Keys (1986) startes to reduce his expression in means of the length of the poem, because in his previous collections (especially in Korabia, 1964 and Through the crack of the sword, 1971) one comes accross particularly long poems that the critics called epic poems.
