Even political poetry may emerge from reflecting one's private life. The third poetry collection of the outstanding poet Mária Ferenčuhová is a proof. Aside from the environmental and private aspects, the four-part book is also interconnected by motives of travel and close observation. The lyrical subject is prompted toward motion by the consciousness of her own deadlock, of a confinement to one place, of her dissatisfaction with her romantic relationship but also of her separation from her own emotions, stemming, partly, from her separation from the environment and from nature. This separation ends in a slow destruction of the world as we know it so far. The tension between sentiment and intimity on one side and the distance from reality and the rationality on the other may be viewed as part of the poet's creative process that she uses throughout her whole writing together with her documentary-style focus on detail.
