The guest of the Royal Łazienki, on 25 May (6:00 p.m., the Palace on the Isle), will be Bohdan Zadura - a poet, prose writer, and translator. The writer will present his poems to the audience, and the host of the meeting will try to persuade him to reveal the secrets of artistic craft and share his views about the state of the contemporary world.
Works of Bohdan Zadura have had an undisputed impact on the rejuvenation of the language of lyric poetry owing to his special way of grasping the relationship between colloquial and poetic language. His poetry is part of an intimate conversation with the reader - not a lyrical monologue. According to the writer, common language is absolutely superior to the homogeneous language of literature.
