In praise of the unfinished : selected poems by Julia Hartwig( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hailed by Czeslaw Milosz as "the grande dame of Polish poetry" and named "one of the foremost Polish poets of the twentieth century" by Ryszard Kapuscinski, Julia Hartwig has long been considered the gold standard of poetry in her native Poland. With this career-spanning collection, we finally have a book of her work in English." "The tragic story of the last century flows naturally through Hartwig's poems. She evokes the husbands who returned silent from battle ("What woman was told about the hell at Monte Cassino?") and asks, "Why didn't I dance on the Champs-Elysees / when the crowd cheered the end of the war? ... Why was I fated to be on the main street of Lublin / watching regiments with red stars enter the city." But there is also a welcoming of new experience in her verse, a sense that life, finally, is too beautiful to condemn. She seeks a higher peace, urging us to hear other voices: "an ermine's cry, moan of a dove, / complaint of an owl - that remind us / the hardship of solitude is measured out equally.""--BOOK JACKET
