about this item

"Wow! What a book! The tradition of women's writing that flows out of the work of Symborska and Anna Swirthe way this mighty tradition turns in the hands of a younger generation from the traumatic history of their country to a poetics of everyday life, of play, and experiment. An absolutely rich and appealing book."Robert Hass

"These cosmopolitan, multilingual poets speak to us across the decades, overcoming a great silence, redirecting the myths, reimagining the role of the poet, and the nature of poetry itself.Scattering the Dark is a useful, subversive, even necessary anthology."Edward Hirsch

Scattering the Dark offers a lively selection of over thirty of Poland's women poets writing before and after the fall of communism.

Karen Kovacik is a translator and poet.
