The new poems and prose texts revolve around the question of belonging and origin, about being a woman and a mother, and about people who have nothing to say in our society. "Eva Seck's poems manage the most difficult: on the one hand, great intimacy and intimacy, they are never abstract, never impersonal, always flooded with life and warmth At the same time, they point beyond the moment at all times, give us language for things that previously left us speechless." (From the jury statement of the Aargau Board of Trustees)
