Ališanka’s latest poetry collection demonstrates many of his already well-known poetic devices: intellectual mind games, rich cultural references, and philosophical and metaphysical themes. At the same time, the more mature he becomes the clearer speaker he becomes. The book is full of hints at personal impressions, travels and childhood memories, all woven together tightly, along with his usual broken, or newly invented, grammar and punctuation. In 2012 it won him the Poetry Spring festival Oak Leaf Garland, the most desirable and prestigious poetry prize in Lithuania.
