With uncompromising precision but still with care, Dénes Krusovszky discusses the fragmental character of human relations and situations in his prose poems. With careful radicalism, he dismantles the construction of relationships, makes visible the flaws, gaps and rifts in (human) existence. The requisites of everyday life, the nature of a cutlery box or the window of a hunting shop are starting points of his perceptive observations and explorations of the deep dimension of his existence. In the poems of Dénes Krusovzsky, isolation and alienation are described in a way that makes us feel like home.

Dénes Krusovszky, born 1982 in Debrecen/Hungary, lives and works as a poet and literary critic in Budapest/Hungary. He is a publisher of the quarterly Pushkin Utca and the JAK World Literature Series. The available poetry series was published under the title Elromlani milyen in Kalligram Verlag in 2009. Dénes Krusovszky was a fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude in the framework of the exchange program with the József Attila Circle in Budapest.
