Most widely held works by Adam Zagajewski
Two cities : on exile, history, and the imagination by Adam Zagajewski ( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In October 1945, when Adam Zagajewski was four months old, his family was forced to move from their beloved native city of Lvov to the ugly, industrial, and, until then, German city of Gliwice, Poland. In the evocative title essay of his new collection, Zagajewski describes his efforts to reconcile his contradictory loyalties to his family - and their idealized past - his own place and his time. In "Open Archives," Zagajewski gives the detested officials of postwar Poland their moment to explain. And finally, in the "New Little Larousse," he adds to his treasury of short, philosophical essays, mimicking encyclopedia entries, including pieces entitled "The Untold Cynicism of Poetry," "I Killed Hitler," and "The Inspired Dermatologist." Regardless of their subject, Zagajewski's essays have the subtlety and resonance of poetry: his is one of the most interesting voices in today's Europe

"With more than two hundred and fifty selected poems by Rilke, including complete translations of the Sonnets to Orpheus and the Duino Elegies, The Poetry of Rilke spans the arc of Rilke's work, from the breakthrough poems of The Book of Hours to the visionary masterpieces written only weeks before his death. This landmark bilingual edition also contains all of Snow's commentaries on Rilke, as well as an important new introduction by the award-winning poet Adam Zagajewski. The Poetry of Rilke will stand as the authoritative single-volume translation of Rilke into English for years to come."--BOOK JACKET
