Three old Slovak poems about women’s desires – in the age of renaissance, baroque and enlightenment

In Roman Kebísek’s article, you can find an excerpt from a poem written by an unhappy nun dreaming of kissing a young man, among other things. The work of poetry was recorded in 1835 by Ján Kollár in his work The National Songs.

“Here I suffer, wither like a rose,

never to taste

the love of a man.”
