About Book

Adam Zagajewski is one of the most important poets to have emerged from the European continent in decades. This selection, made by the author himself, draws from his English-language collections both in and out of print. Vivid, attentive to the world, the poems in these lucid translations share the vocation that allows us, in Zagajewski's words, 'to experience astonishment and to stop still in that astonishment for a long moment or two'.

'Seldom has the muse . . . spoken to anyone with such clarity and urgency as in Zagajewski's case.' Joseph Brodsky
