Six Lithuanian Poets Paperback / softback
Edited by Eugenijus Alsianka
Part of the New Voices from Europe series
The poets whose work is included in this anthology were born in the 1960s, when Lithuania was part of the Soviet Union, and mostly started publishing after the country achieved independence in 1991.
Unlike their predecessors, the poets of this generation are not concerned with political themes but rather with issues of aesthetics and existential quests.
While each follows his or her unique path, they all share a penchant for experimentation and an ironic, post-modern perspective, following European literary trends rather than domestic poetic traditions.
