Modern Polish poets


The current appearance of Polish poetry was largely determined by the social changes that took place in Poland after 1989, when Solidarity won the first free elections and, in fact, a bloodless revolution took place in the country, ending the communist regime. The revolution took place then and in Polish poetry. People came to literature who announced a radical break with the past. Russian Russian reader, accustomed to his liberal or dissident sixties, will be surprised by the absence of the rhetoric of a just cause in these verses, the individuality of experience and skeptical thought, and, finally, the tone of personal dignity that does not drown in the chorus of voices," wrote Adam Pomorsky, an outstanding connoisseur of Polish and Russian literature. The book unites poets of different generations, whose poems have been translated by the best translators of Polish poetry. The anthology includes 24 authors: Justyna Bargelska, Wojciech Bonovich, Martina Bulizhanskaya, Jacek Gutorov, Jacek Denel, Bogdan Zadura, Ryszard Krinicki, Joanna Muller, Bronka Nowicka, Marta Podgurnik, Jacek Podsiadlo, Marcin Sendecki, Szymon Slomczynski, Dariusz Sosnicki, Andrzej Sosnowski, Dariusz Suska, Eugeniusz Tkachyszyn-Dicky, Julia Fedorchuk, Darek Fox, Roman Honet, Julia Shikhovyak, Slawomir Elsner, Krzysztof Jaworski, Jerzy Jarniewicz.
