The Poet's Work: An Introduction to Czeslaw Milosz
Born in the early years of the 20th century, in Lithuania, Czeslaw Milosz, a self-described connoisseur of heavens and abysses has produced a corpus of poems, essays, memoirs, and fiction of great depth and range. In The Poet's Work, Leonard Nathan and Arthur Quinn follow Milosz's wanderings in exile from Poland to Paris to Berkeley as they chart the development of his art. They relate his life and his works to the unfolding of his thought.
