Halyna Kruk. Spiv/isnuvannya. (Singing of Existence/ Coexistence)

Halyna Kruk. Spiv/isnuvannya. (Singing of Existence/ Coexistence)
"What is it like coexistence of everything with everything? What is it like that singing of existence? The God of our time polysemy tempts us with shimmer of meanings, the desire to reconcile the irreconcilable. How is it possible to sing the entire diversity of the world in one song? This is what the new poems by the famous Lviv poetess Halyna Kruk, written in 2006-2012, are about."

This is what Serhiy Zhadan writes about this book: "When mistrust transforms into tenderness, and alienation into empathy, there appear poems about those who for a long time you have been trying not to remember, about all those men, women, and butterflies without a name, home or gender, who have always hid in your memory without stepping into the light. Halka writes about herself in such a manner that only the family doctor could write about her in a light, detached, and open manner, so that psychoanalysis turns into psychedelics with tart impurities of the drive that she has enough of."
In Ukrainian.
