What words would the European Poet of Freedom Award Jurors use to describe the poetry of this year’s laureate Monika Herceg? Why is her book of poems Lovostaj. (translated into Polish by Aleksandra Wojtaszek) so worth reading? What did Olga Tokarczuk, Krzysztof Czyżewski, Beata Stasińska, Anda Rottenberg, Anna Czekanowicz and Andrzej Jagodziński find important and fascinating in the poetry of this young Croatioan author?

You will find the answers in the first video from a mini series of conversations with the Jurors of the Award. Film is available with English subtitles.
