Unseen hand by Adam Zagajewski( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most gifted poets of our time, Adam Zagajewski is a contemporary classic. Few writers in poetry or prose have attained the lucid intelligence and limpid economy of style that are the trademarks of his work. His wry humor, gentle skepticism, and perpetual sense of historys dark possibilities have earned him a devoted international following. This collection, gracefully translated by Clare Cavanagh, finds the poet returning to the themes that have defined his careermoving meditations on place, language, and history. Unseen Hand is a luminous meeting of art and everyday life
Polish writers on writing( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and Polish and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Polish Writers on Writing captures the brilliance and originality of a literature rightly considered one of the most important and influential of our time. No common denominator, not even the easy one of "Polish twentieth-century author," does justice to the variety of talents, styles, and experiences in this collection. The writers are branded by the political realities of their country - creating literature out of the brutality of the Second World War, under the inhibiting and numbing Communist reign, and finally within a free society, but one burdened by its history. -- from back cover

28 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Another beauty by Adam Zagajewski( Book )

37 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this memoir he observes the eccentricities of his professors and student peers, wrestles with the absurdity and hovering menace of Communist politics, and illuminates the strange byways of literary history; from Ovid to Saint Augustine to Czeslaw Milosz."--Jacket
A defense of ardor by Adam Zagajewski( Book )

31 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket
Józef Czapski : an apprenticeship of looking by Eric Karpeles( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This stunning monograph, a long-overdue critical appraisal of Polish artist Jozef Czapski (1896-1993), arrives at a moment when the artist's legacy is gaining new recognition. Within these pages, author Eric Karpeles conveys how making art was so enmeshed with Czapski's way of seeing and being in the world that it was second nature. Given that he lived into his 97th year, it's no surprise that the artist has works dating from every decade of the 20th century but the first. As witness to the tumultuous events of that century, he found in painting "a refuge and a salvation". Prolific as a painter, he was equally disciplined in recording the events of his life in pencil, ink, and watercolour in his journals. At a time when abstract art tended to dominate aesthetic discourse, he preferred to observe the world around him, to portray people going about their daily business. Some of his most compelling works depict theatre-goers and art lovers doing what they do best - looking

For the past twenty-five years, North Point Press has been working with Edward Snow, "Rilke's best contemporary translator" (Brian Phillips, The New Republic), to bring into English Rilke's major poetic works. The Poetry of Rilke'the single most comprehensive volume of Rilke's German poetry ever to be published in English'is the culmination of this effort. 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
