Agnė Žagrakalytė (b. 1979) is the author of three books of poetry and two books of prose. She has a truly unique poetic voice that is easy to recognize. One of the most important topics of Žagrakalytė's poetry is womanhood, in all of its various forms and transformations. Her texts often play with social and cultural stereotypes. This is alongside other significant themes in her work, like relationships between men and women, living abroad (the poet has been living in Brussels for several years), and her relationship with her homeland. Žagrakalytė's poetry is a creative force of nature filled with details and colloquial language. Her playfulness, lightness and eroticism set her apart in the broader field of Lithuanian poetry.
