Professor Maryan Stalya described the work of Lukaš Yaraš as follows: "this is poetry of the best, genuine sample. Its power lies in the ability to snatch out pieces of reality (taken from what I saw, touched, heard and remembered), and then put them together into a whole that at first seems simple, and then begins to darken, acquire depths, refer to some mystery."
