The journals of a White Sea wolf by Mariusz Wilk( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1991, Mariusz Wilk, a Polish journalist long fascinated by Russian history and culture, decided to take up residence in the Solovetski Islands, the lonely archipelago on Russia's remote northern White Sea coast. For Wilk, these islands represented the soul and quintessence of Russia: a place of exile and spiritual holiness and a microcosm of the then crumbling Soviet empire. On the one hand, the largest island had been a cradle of the Orthodox faith, site of a fifteenth-century monastery that was later used as a military fortress in the war with Sweden; on the other, it was there that the first experimental gulag had been built after the 1917 revolution. It was still home to a large community of monks." "Over the years, Wilk came to know every single one of the islands' one thousand or so inhabitants, who continued to eke out their living from the harsh surroundings, unconcerned about the momentous events that were in Moscow in the process of changing the course of Russian history. From his isolated home, he observed and attempted to come to terms with the complexities and contradictions of Russian history: the glorious past contrasted with the cruelty of Soviet Communism."--BOOK JACKET

Two cities : on exile, history, and the imagination by Adam Zagajewski( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in French and held by 21 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
