HOW THE EARTH CARRIES US: New Lithuanian Poets

The poetry anthology “How the Earth Carries Us. New Lithuanian Poets” introduces prominent Lithuanian poets born after 1970 who no longer fit in the writing tradition of the Soviet system. It is a new, free generation looking for original ways to speak in verse and interested in the meaning of poetry in the present-day society. Lithuanian poetry of the 21st century appears in a myriad of different styles, experiments with topics and form, and rejects old traditions.  This anthology presents as many as 30 poets embodying this development in the creative thought and artistic searchings.
