- O programie
European Literary Heritage is a project designed by Biuro Literackie – a Polish independent publishing house – aiming at enhancing circulation of European literature and providing readers in Poland with valuable works of the most interesting authors from the continent that have not been translated into Polish before. The project consists of two complementary blocks: „Classics of European Poetry” with poetry volumes of Salvador Espriu (Catalonia), Morten Nielsen (Denmark), Ján Ondruš (Slovakia), Miroljub Todorović (Serbia), Ivan Wernisch (Czech Republic) and Oton Župančič (Slovenia) and „New Female Voices from Europe”’ with works of Adda Djørup (Denmark), Nataša Kramberger (Slovenia), Réka Mán-Várhegyi (Hungary) and Tanja Stupar-Trifunović (Serbia). The series „Classics from Europe” was based on the strong conviction that works of literature that have already become the groundwork of European poetry need to be translated into Polish to enable readers a better understanding of the pillars contemporary European literature – in its polyphonic complexity. The series „New Female Voices from Europe” is a natural development of a well-received by readers and critics project launched by BL in 2015 thanks to the support from the CE Translations program. It aims at presenting the most interesting contemporary authors from Europe (of the same languages as the Classical Poets – constituting a literary dialogue between the works from the package), whose writing set new trends and who are natural points of references for Polish writers. The objective of the series is stimulation of cultural dialogue based on the good understanding of the literary background and the latest tendencies. The project involves the best translators experienced in the field and will have a widespread promotion including the presentation of each book during a festival organized by BL – Station Literature, which is recognized as one of the most important cultural initiatives in Poland.
