In his introduction to Arc’s 2009 anthology Six Polish Poets, Jacek Dehnel wrote that Poland’s new voices could be split into two camps: those working in traditional forms, but in new ways and modern language, and those whose work was language-focused, inspired by the avant-garde. Does Dehnel still agree with this, and if not, what has changed in the eight years since? He joins the ‘Polish Sappho’, poet Marzanna Kielar and British-Pakistani poet Moniza Alvi to discuss the state of Polish poetry today.
