Presentation of Inger Christensen in Russian

Danish Cultural Institute in St. Petersburg hosts a presentation of the sterling Danish poet Inger Christensen in Russian.

Wednesday, march 28th, 18.00 – 20.00. At DCI, Moika 42, off. 38.


Inger Christensen (1935-2009) is one of the most brilliant representatives of Danish literature.


She began her writing career as a modernist, later she explored the full potential of “systemic poetry”, and finally she embodied a cosmic synthesis of language and visions of the world.


Now, after several years’ work, Inger Christensens two earliest collections of poetry, Lys (Light) (1962 ) and Græs (Grass) (1963) are available in a Russian translation by Marina Tjurina Oberlander.

The institute offers a glass of wine for the occation.
