Ferida Duraković, Serce ciemności

Heart of Darkness

The most famous volume of poems from Sarajevo by Ferida Duraković is titled Serce ciemności [Heart of Darkness]. Its premiere, translated into Polish by Magdalena Koch , will take place during the 8th edition of the Miłosz Festival in cooperation with Pogranicze Publishing House. The siege of Sarajevo and the images of armed conflict, the feminist message about the position of a woman in the insensitive gears of the war machine – her poems and essays materialise what many of her compatriots would rather forget. However, historical darkness brightens on the horizon of this work.
