"Niektórzy lubią poezję" – ale czy koniecznie polską i w Szwecji?...

“Some People Like Poetry“– but why just Polish and in Sweden?... 

Among the contemporary Polish poetry that has been translated into Swedish, it is easy to distinguish two groups: postwar poetry by the older generation and poems by the middle generation. Poets who debuted in the 1990s and later are not very well represented in Swedish translation. The factor which has most strongly colored the image of Polish literature in Sweden is undoubtedly the political one. Hence, more recent Polish poetry, especially after the watershed year of 1989, was until recently only minimally represented in the Swedish literary market. This article examines the current situation in order to address the following questions: Has the Swedish reception of Polish poetry undergone revision and re-evaluation? Can we speak of a generational change of guard? And is there a need in Sweden for translations of modern poetry from the geographically close but otherwise quite distant socio-cultural sphere of Poland?
