Milan Ohnisko

Milan Ohnisko (16 July 1965 in Brno) is a Czech poet and editor. After quitting two secondary schools before graduating either of them he worked in many manual professions. He also had his own publishing house and a bookshop. Currently he works as a freelance editor.


Ohnisko's poetry is a mixture of naivist technique which uses word play with highly rational punchlines, and neo-decadent sense of tragedy and quixotism of an outsider fighting the mainstream. He often uses and combines naivism, irony, humor and absurdity.
