Mária Ferenčuhová (1975) is a linguist, translator, film theoretician and poet. She is the author and co-author of three scientific monographs on film, dealing extensively with domestic film and documentary films. She translates prose, poetry and essays from French, and has produced four collections of poetry that have been translated into several languages and for which she has received several awards.
Her poetry resembles entries in a diary, with which she constantly records and describes her everyday life, her emotional life, and her motherly experience. Especially the latter sometimes seems a bit cold, with the images often infiltrated by nihilism, especially when considering the future that she sees in the shadows of the anti-utopia and the environmental apocalypse, which no one in Slovakia has ever thought about at the time when the collection was released.
