“Poet? It’s a walking anachronism”: Q&A with Gintaras Grajauskas

“While I live I will belong to every possible species, because I don’t want to be a collector’s butterfly”, Gintaras Grajauskas (Lithuanian, b. 1966) told in an interview years ago. And kept his word: books of literary history and Wikipedia pages are constantly updating the list of “roles”: poet, essayist, playwright, musician and songwriter; currently, Head of Klaipėda Drama Theatre’s Literary Department.

Gintaras Grajauskas: heart of amber

Nomen omen, the Romans used to say. In Lithuanian, Gintaras indeed means amber, which is known for its characteristic to get electrified when rubbed. The poet puts the words together and, rubbing against each other, electrifies them till they burst into a sudden electric shock.

Thanks to three friends who one day took all the pluses and minuses of their town and turned them into a brand.
