Two Cities by Adam Zagajewski

Book Description

In this varied collection of deeply personal, lyrical essays and short literary sketches, leading contemporary Polish poet Adam Zagajewski contends with the effects of coming of age, both artistically and intellectually, in a totalitarian regime. No matter their subject, Zagajewski's essays have the subtlety and resonance of poetry; his is one of the most intriguing voices in today's Europe.

Books By Author Adam Zagajewski

Kore by Adam Zagajewski Kore, Hardback (November 2012)

It has become unfortunately rare for a scientist or doctor to find his grounding in a broad understanding of literature and the humanities. In this book, the author insists that only with a curiosity thoroughly at home in both worlds can one expect to discover what we should mean about sickness and about the soul.

Unseen Hand by Adam Zagajewski Unseen Hand, Paperback (July 2012)

One of the most vibrant voices of our time, Adam Zagajewski is a modern master of the poetic form. This translation finds the poet revisiting those themes that have long preoccupied him - the enduring imprint of history, the beauty of nature, the place of the exile. Unseen Hand is a moving meditation on the sublimity of everyday life.

Unseen Hand: Poems by Adam Zagajewski Unseen Hand: Poems, Hardback (May 2011)

"Originally published in 2009 by Znak Publishers, Poland, as Niewidzialna reka"--T.p. verso.
