Unseen hand by Adam Zagajewski( Book )

One of the most gifted poets of our time, Adam Zagajewski is a contemporary classic.

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 281 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

Another beauty by Adam Zagajewski( Book )

42 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 161 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 )

30 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 120 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
