Milosz's ABC's by Czeslaw Milosz

Book Description

"Memories, dreams and reflections from the Nobel Laureate"The ABC book is a polish genre-a loose form related to a hypertext novel-composed of short, alphabetically arranged entries. In Milosz's conception, the ABC book becomes a sort of autobiographical reference book, combining entries concerning characters from his earlier work with references to some of his memory poems. He also writes of real, historical figures like Camus who were particularly influential during his formative years, and of broader topics such as "The City," "Unhappiness," and "Money." Another fascinating entry in Milosz's bold opus, "Milosz's ABCs" is an engaging tribute to a brilliant mind.
