Under the title Common past, shared future, the Embassies of Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and the Polish Institute of Culture present the best selection of their contemporary poets: Marcin Kurek (Poland), Michal Habaj (Slovakia), Petr Borkovec (Czech Republic) and Ferenc Szőnyi (Hungary). Two are the dates of this presentation: this afternoon, at 20:15 hrs at the Pavilion of activities of the Book Fair of Madrid 2015, in El Retiro Park; and tomorrow, at 19:00 hrs at the Royal Foundation of Toledo (2 Victorio Macho Square).
The poetic works of these poets show their cultural and historical connections. The poetry of Central Europe is very original and refreshing. It reflects new tendencies and artistic procedures that aroused after the change of political system in these societies.
