Mária Ferenčuhová (1975) is a poet and translator from the French (Paul Virilio, Amélie Nothomb, Philippe Sollers, Samuel Beckett, Jacques Rancière, Laurent Binet, Alain Mabanckou), who has also taught at the Film and Television Department of the Bratislava Academy of Performing Arts. Her four carefully constructed collections of poetry published to date reflect the theme of uprootedness, alienation, existential insecurity and immutable routine, partnership and mother-child relations stripped of pathos, as well as terminal illness and our threatened environment. Ferenčuhová’s collections of poetry include Ohrozený druh (Threatened Species, 2012) and Imunita (Immunity, 2016).
