    Małgorzata Lebda became the laureate of the Wisława Szymborska Award for the best poetry book published last year

    Małgorzata Lebda became the laureate of the Wisława Szymborska Award for the best poetry book published last year. The award for the volume “Mer de Glace” was received by the artist on Saturday at the National Stary Theater in Kraków.

    The competition is organized by the Wisława Szymborska Foundation. The Wisława Szymborska Award is of international nature, it will be given annually for a poetry book published in the Polish language in the preceding year. Poetry books originally published in the Polish language or translated into Polish can be submitted to the competition. (szymborska.org.pl)

    This year’s edition included 276 volumes of Polish poetry published last year. The jury chose five nominees –  Zuzanna Bartoszek for “Klucz wisi na Słońcu”, Jerzy Jarniewicz for “Mondo cane”, Krzysztof Siwczyk for “Crematoria I. Crematoria II”, Dariusz Sośnicki for “Po Domu”, and the laureate Małgorzata Lebda for “Mer der Glace”.

    Yesterday during the gala – in great emotions – I said (forgive me for quoting myself!): Let’s love each other and read poetry!

     

     

    During the gala, the award for the best translation of a volume of poetry into Polish was also presented. It was received by Wojciech Charchalis for the translation of the poems included in the volume “Heteronyms” by Fernando Pessoi.
