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.
