Marzanna Bogumila Kielar

Marzanna Bogumila Kielar (born 1963 in Goldap, Poland) debuted in 1992 with the poetry collection “Sacra Conversazione”, for which she won two major literary prizes the same year. She writes subtle, personal verse into which she constantly threads references to culture and philosophy. Her images are practically tangible in their strength and sharpness. “The poems of Marzanna Boqumila Kielar reconstruct a mythical, motionless space.” (Andrzej Stasiuk).
