Jacek Dehnel is a poet, novelist, painter and translator. In 2005 he was awarded Poland’s Koscielski Prize for promising new writers, becoming one of the youngest ever recipients. He studied Polish Literature at Warsaw University and wrote his PhD on the Polish translations of Philip Larkin. Dehnel presents Saturn, a fictionalized version of the personal life of the great Spanish painter Goya. The story is built around the theory that Goya’s horrific series of Black Paintings were in fact the work of his son Javier, and were Javier’s way of expressing his feelings about his father.
