Lit_cast Slovakia #11 with Mária Ferenčuhová

In Lit_Cast Slovakia #11, Slovak poet and translator Mária Ferenčuhová tells Julia Sherwood how the pandemic made her appreciate virtual literary events and turn from writing straight poetry to texts dealing with fragility, aging and dying, in an interdisciplinary and intuitive way of working. She also talks about translating Michel Houellebecq and cooperative translation of poetry, and recommends a bunch of Slovak poets to read in, or be translated into English.
