Ewa Lipska

Country: Poland
Language: Polish
Year of birth: 1945

Ewa Lipska debuted in 1967 as a poet with the collection Wiersze (Poems). In total she has written more than twenty poetry collections and a couple of anthologies. Lipska belongs to the most important poets of her generation in Poland. Over the years, her mistrust of the language of her daily surroundings, for her a language of masks and lies, has grown. In response, Lipska has developed an inverted language, which is confrontational and frequently ominous. Her poems are lucid, and in few words, she puts forth her own reality with gently irony.
