Latgalian is a language spoken by about 164,000 people in Latgale, a region in the south-east of Latvia. Its vibrant literary output has been recently rewarded with recognition from literary critics and several nominations at the yearly LALIGABA Awards, Latvia’s highest literary awards ceremony.
The authors in this collection – Ligija Purinaša, Raibīs, and Ingrida Tārauda – show the versatility, richness, and innovativeness of Latgalian poetry.
The legacy of post-Soviet societies, the historical and contemporary status of women in the region, and visible influences from other literatures and cultures make Latgalian poetry a must-read for all interested in the art of poetry.
