Kevin Hart (Australia) traces a metaphysical arc in his poetry which links human existence, language and the reality of and beyond things. H. Bloom called him »one of the most important living poets in the English language«.
Dennis O’Driscoll (Ireland) writes about the everyday worlds in which he has moved in his almost 40 years as a civil servant. Subtle, at times comical, at times tragic, he reflects on the immediate present and the ephemeral.
Nikola Madzirov (Macedonia) breaks free of traditional thought patterns in his poetry with melancholy ease – nothing is bound, everything is temporary, the only continuity is in motion: »The world's unrest will be with us.«
Serhiy Zhadan (Ukraine) makes poetry out of the lack of orientation in post-Soviet society. Oscillating between the romance of decay and a defiant forward momentum, the voice of a generation in political upheaval can be heard.
