Pectus publishing house, Košice 2016
In the anthology Litteriada 2016 are literary extracts of authors presented at the 4th year of international literary festival. The novelist Zdenko Fajčák and the poet Marián Hatala are the representatives of the Slovak literature at the festival, Karl Grenzler represents the German literature and Stefan Jurkowski and Marek Petrykowski are the Polish representatives. Poetry has dominance this time. It seems that the authors are associated with the self-reflection poetry typical for the present. But it does not mean they ignore the current social problems. They peculiarly and often with keeping on top of things and the ironic distance discuss the politics, social networks and other maladies. At the same time human relations are not ignored in their own stance. They pay attention to dilemmas, collision and the human drama without which the art would be worthless. Independently from the text level that cannot be shared in the same way by authors, they offer their voice incidentally, quietly and more likeably and so they are not trying to get attention at any price.
