Poetry sets the pace of life


This article is the author’s lyrical reflection on the literary life in modern Lithuania. One of its particular aspects is poetical festivals of different levels. In this context, the author considered the 50th festival “The spring of poetry” dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the birth of Kristijonas Donelaitis. The festival made it possible to identify the influence of Donelaitis on modern Lithuanian poetry, as well as its indirect effect on Kaliningrad poets.
