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+-+41653792852747ocn076167374book20070.50Polish writers on writingCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+55859804062467ocn019457133book19890.70Zagajewski, AdamSolidarity, solitude : essays+-+51366553353242354ocn681499663book20110.32Zagajewski, AdamUnseen hand+-+94353792858218ocn018745800book19850.76Zagajewski, AdamJechaı́ do Lwowa : i inne wiersze818ocn007856657book19810.53Zagajewski, AdamPolen : Staat im Schatten der SowjetunionHistory7313ocn015614495book19860.84Zagajewski, AdamSolidarność i samotność731ocn762098826book20110.86Cohen, AlanEarth with meaning : Alan CohenExhibition catalogs6015ocn039294438book19980.76Zagajewski, AdamW cudzym pięknie566ocn010074665book19830.84Zagajewski, AdamList ; Oda do wielości : poezje4817ocn023274516book19900.79Zagajewski, AdamPłótno465ocn050258020book20000.33Zagajewski, AdamIch schwebe über Krakau : Erinnerungsbilder446ocn031716715book19940.93Zagajewski, AdamZiemia ognista4010ocn044137800book19990.66Zagajewski, AdamPragnienie364ocn603045702book20090.86Fischl, EricEric Fischl : corrida en RondaExhibition catalogs332ocn664092156book20090.28Rilke, Rainer MariaThe poetry of Rilke"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.

Few writers in either poetry or prose can be said to have attained the lucid intelligence and limpid economy of style that have become a matter of course with Zagajewski. It is these qualities, combined with his wry humor, gentle skepticism, and perpetual sense of history's dark possibilities, that have earned him a devoted international following. This collection, gracefully translated by Clare Cavanagh, finds the poet reflecting on place, language, and history. Especially moving here are his tributes to writers, friends known in person or in books--people such as Milosz and Sebald, Brodsky and Blake--which intermingle naturally with portraits of family members and loved ones. Eternal Enemies is a luminous meeting of art and everyday life. -- Publisher's description+-+29816792852865ocn025454259book19910.59Zagajewski, AdamCanvasPoetryCanvas, Adam Zagajewski's second volume of poems to appear in English, in a translation by Renata Gorczynski, Benjamin Ivry, and C. K. Williams, represents one of the new Europe's most commanding lyric voices in full power. Zagajewski's poetry portrays a contemporary spiritual reality haunted by paradox: the world he evokes is visited by the specters of totalitarianism, genocide, brute force, but also by natural beauty, reason, joy, and love. "And what if Heraclitus and Parmenides / are both right," Zagajewski asks, "and two worlds exist side by side, / one serene, the other insane..." "Who owns the earth... / By day it's conquered / by square-skulled men: / police. At nights / we reclaim our homeland." The outer world, political reality, is opposed by another realm, equally immediate and tangible if evanescent, where "despair turns to rapture; and the hard fruits of stars in the sky / ripen like grapes and beauty endures, shaken, unperturbed." Though he came to maturity in the upheavals of late Communist Poland and since 1981 has lived in France, Zagajewski is not a poet of exile. The condition he describes is existential, universal. His occasions are instants of contemplation, crucial if unremarkable moments in the lives of his heroes--Schubert, Simone Weil, Mozart, Bruckner--and in his own daily experience. The dualism of Zagajewski's art is double-edged. "Clearly nothing links enlightenment and the dark pain of cruelty," he writes. "At least two kingdoms exist / if not more." Cruelty coexists with enlightenment, true; but the reverse is also the case. And this is perhaps the ultimate spur for the questioning, the wonder, the insatiable hunger for being that are the most insistent and profound themes in this great poet's work+-+83487092852782ocn055510811book20040.53Zagajewski, AdamA defense of ardor"Ardor, inspiration, the soul, the sublime : such terms have long since fallen from favor among critics and artists alike. In his new collection of essays, Adam Zagajewski continues his efforts to reclaim for art not just the terms but the scanted spiritual dimension of modern human existence that they describe." "Zagajewski's topics range from autobiography (his first visit to post-Soviet Lvov after childhood exile; his illicit readings of Nietzsche in Communist Poland); to considerations of artist friends past and present (Zbigniew Herbert, Czeslaw Milosz); to intellectual and psychological portraits of cities he has known, east and west; to a thumbnail sketch of postwar Polish poetry."--BOOK JACKET+-+55818692852374ocn048477570book20020.81Shallcross, BożenaThrough the poet's eye : the travels of Zagajewski, Herbert, and Brodsky"Though best known as poets, Adam Zagajewski (born 1945), Zbigniew Herbert (1924-98), and Joseph Brodsky (1940-96) wrote some of the most original prose of this century. It is this prose - remarkable for its cross-cultural complexity and interdisciplinary richness - that concerns Bozena Shallcross in Through the Poet's Eye. The travels undertaken by these Eastern European poets, who each journeyed to the West under different circumstances, give Shallcross her point of departure as she explores the connections between the sensory experience of travel and the revelatory perception of the visual arts manifest in their writings."--BOOK JACKET+-+3283665635611ocn018412796book19870.90Packalén, Małgorzata SzulcPokolenie 68 : studium o poezji polskiej lat siedemdziesiątych = Generation 68 : studies in Polish poetry of the '70sCriticism, interpretation, etc401ocn056659106book20040.73Zagajewski, AdamSelected poemsThis selection, made by the author himself, draws from his English-language collections both in and out of print.
