The Issa Valley by Czesław Miłosz( Book )

197 editions published between 1898 and 2019 in 14 languages and held by 1,722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas, the child-protagonist of The Issa Valley, is subject to both the contradictons of nature in this severe northern setting and the sometimes enchanting, sometimes brutal timbre of village life. There are deep pine and spruce forests, the grouse and the deer, and the hunter's gun. There is Magdalena, the beautiful mistress of the village priest, whose suicide unleashes her ghost to haunt the parish. There are also the loving grandparents with whom Thomas lives, who provide a balance to the not-quite-Dostoevskian devils that visit the villagers. In the end, Thomas is severed from his childhood and the Issa river, and leaves prepared for adventures beyond his valley. Poetic and richly imagined, The Issa Valley is a masterful work of fiction from one of our greatest living poets. --Publisher

The seizure of power by Czesław Miłosz( Book )

134 editions published between 1953 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 1,143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers in the free world may be brought up short amid the literary pleasures of this novel by a Nobel Prize-winning poet. Are they sufficiently honoring the peace and freedom denied to the characters seen here in World War II Poland? Or are they, like the Americans observed by Milosz in another book, using their distance from the upheavals of history for no more than the equivalent of watching TV in a bar? Whatever the answer, a Western reader has to feel a humbling admiration for the depicted resisters of Nazi and then Soviet tyranny, precursors of the Solidarity heroes whose second anniversary was celebrated last month. (August) And what of those who gave up resisting then - or now? Milosz fascinatingly explores the characters able to rationalize compliance with a repressive regime. Here, for example, is a writer forced into a pact with the communist devil, accepting a printing press from the authorities, trying to place conditions on the selling of his soul, bleakly imagining the dark years ahead. It is a brief, telling fictional -vignette to accompany the analysis of artists snared by Stalinism for which Milosz's ''The Captive Mind'' is known

The Jews in Polish culture by Aleksander Hertz( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in Polish and English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sociological analysis of the Jewish presence in Poland throughout history. States that Jews lived in Poland as a caste, and compares their status to the situation of Blacks in the USA. The Jews' separateness aroused antagonism and antisemitism. Discusses the process of stereotyping of the Jew up to the recent Jew-communist stereotype ("Żydokomuna"). The mythologization of Jews as enemies gained strength in the interwar period. Stresses the irrational elements of antisemitism and the need of people for a scapegoat. States that although the Jews lived as a caste, they were not totally isolated from Polish social life. Discusses mutual influences, the assimilation of many individuals, and the contribution of Jews to Polish culture. Surveys, as well, the image of the Jew in Polish literature, and emphasizes that it does not reflect the reality of the Jewish presence in Poland
Striving towards being : the letters of Thomas Merton and Czeslaw Milosz by Thomas Merton( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1958 Thomas Merton wrote an admiring letter to Czeslaw Milosz about his seminal work The Captive Mind. Milosz replied and thus began an animated correspondence which lasted until Merton's death in 1968. During this highly productive decade, Merton continued, a Trappist, to write about nonviolence and the monastic life. Milosz, meanwhile, was writing influential essays and translating the poetry of Aleksander Wat and Anna Swir. In this dynamic correspondence, Milosz and Merton differ in their views of the role of Communism, share thoughts about the power of literature, and contrast their views on the natural world. As different as Milosz and Merton were, they found common ground in their spiritual search and in a desire to understand the human race. A memorial to a great friendship between two of this century's celebrated men of letter, Striving Towards Being is a testament to the examined life
Nobel lecture by Czesław Miłosz( Book )

8 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exiles by Josef Koudelka( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of pictures by an acknowledged master of photography, now updated to include 11 new images, forms a document of the spiritual and physical state of exile. The sense of private mystery that fills these photographs - mostly taken during Koudelka's many years of wandering through Europe and the United States since leaving his native Czechoslovakia - speaks of passion and reserve, of his "rage to see". The images here interrogate and penetrate, and reflect the nature of alienation. The accompanying essay by Robert Delpire invokes the soul of man in search of a spiritual homeland."--Amazon
