Jerzy Kronhold

(b. 1946) is a well­ ­respected poet, considered to be a co­creator of the movement in Polish poetry known as Nowa Fala (New Wave). For a long time, his work was overshadowed by the work of his more famous colleagues such as Stanisław Barańczak, Adam Zagajewski and Ryszard Krynicki, but appreciation for his poetry has increased with time. Kronhold has published about a dozen volumes of poetry. He was nominated for Poland’s most important literary awards for his book of poetry titled A Long Jump (2016) and won the Literary Award of the Capital City of Warsaw. Kronhold is also a cultural activist and diplomat – he has served as the consul general in Ostrava twice and as the director of the Polish Institute in Bratislava.
