“Huddled in full sentences” Poetic Worlds of Ewa Lipska

A lecture by Jaroslaw Anders

From the Kosciuszko Foundation website: One of the most distinctive voices in contemporary Polish poetry, Ewa Lipska's writing combines the feeling of personal vulnerability, social corrosion, historical perils, and philosophical uncertainties of modern life. Often associated with the poets of Generation 68, she has created a unique poetic universe of her own. An ironist and skeptic acutely aware of the finality of human existence and the presence of death in every moment of life, she also projects a sense of stoicism and intellectual reserve that allow her to speak about the darkest corners of experiences with compassion and without despair.

Jaroslaw Anders talks about the poetic worlds of Ewa Lipska in the third and final part of his presentation of the first generation of Polish poets born after World War II.
