The last, paramount part of a loose trilogy of poetry with loneliness at home as its theme.
The sixth collection of poems by Milan Děžinský, Walking Around an Island, cements the leading position of this author from the younger generation of poets in the context of Czech poetry. In his collection of poems from 2011 to 2016, the author stays in his own exclusive domain: creating strong, mature poems, “shields against emptiness”, from inconspicuous, simple starting moments. The expressivity of these poems is not straightforward, which makes them more impressive. The central image of an island to be inhabited and turned into a home runs throughout the book.
