Hebrew and Swedish.
Ewa Lipska has published 15 books of poetry, making her
debut in 1967 with
Wiersze [Poems] and most recently, Drzazga
Originally identified to some extent with the Polish ‘New
Wave’ of poets in the
late 1960’s, Lipska’s work has always in some form carried
an integral concern
for the individual’s fate in the immediate world through
history, coupled with an
exploration of man’s emotional interior. Recognised as
one of Poland’s major
poets, Lipska’s poetry is a vital contribution to literary
sensibilities and literature
in general, with its innovative use of simple language
to create new cognitive
tensions, forms of reasoning the world within and without.
