New Poetry from Eastern Europe

Hay Festival 2004, 
Taja Kramberger from Slovenia, Edward Pasewicz from Poland and Katerina Rudyenkove from the Czech Republic are among the twenty young poets featured in A Fine Line: New Poetry from East and Central Europe, just out from Arc Publications with a preface by Vaclav Havel. These poets' encounter with Western abundance gives them fresh imagery, but also grounds for amusement and irony. This is a poetry of wit and complexity, never raw but always glowing with human feeling.
