Translations from, to and within South Eastern Europe


Das Herz zwischen den Zähnen

Lazić, Radmila.

lazic_herzWith shocking directness Radmila Lazić speaks about things, which you would normally keep quiet about, and is regarded as "the only cat in Serbian poetry, who can scratch". Undaunted, she calls things by names, swims against the tide and breaks taboos, and is not afraid to talk about the wishes, needs and desires of women in patriarchal Serbia. Radmila Lazić introduces a completely new tone to lyrical poetry, especially as these poems speak a direct, everyday and yet poetic language.

The bilingual selection of poetry Das Herz zwischen den Zähnen [Heart between Teeth] by Radmila Lazić has been published by Leipziger Literaturverlag. Chosen from the Serbian and translated into German (excerpt) by Mirjana Wittmann and Klaus Wittmann.
