Brandenburg Award for Literature
Helga M. Novak
»Beyond reading pleasure SILVATICA provides sensuous pleasure with linguistic skills, intellectual enjoyment and reflecting.
A unique voice within comtemporary literature.«
»Helga M. Novak’s poems enclose landscapes of the soul, opened up anew with each read.«
Michael Lenz, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
»Novak's tone is intensive, tender, direct, sometimes rough. One of her most beautiful book of poems is her latest: SILVATICA.«
