9780060783907: The Collected Poems 1956-1998

This title includes the collected poems - together in English for the first time - of one of the greatest twentieth-century poets. Zbigniew Herbert is one of the outstanding poets of the last century. This exceptional new translation brings together, for the first time in English in one volume, his entire poetic output - from his first book of poems, "String of Light", in 1956, to his final volume, previously unpublished in English, "Epilogue of the Storm". As Joseph Brodsky said of "Herbert's Selected Poems", this definitive collection is 'bound for a much longer haul than any of us can anticipate'.

Product Description:

Zbigniew Herbert is one of the outstanding poets of the last century. This exceptional new translation brings together, for the first time in English in one volume, his entire poetic output - from his first book of poems, "String of Light", in 1956, to his volume, previously unpublished in English, "Epilogue of the Storm". As Joseph Brodsky said of Herbert's "Selected Poems", this definitive collection is 'bound for a much longer haul than any of us can anticipate'.

Review:

"'Herbert is a poet with all the strength of an Antaeus... He shoulders the whole sky and the scope of human dignity and responsibility.' Seamus Heaney 'As a poet, [Hebert] refused the easy consolation of big ideas, preferring to focus on the choices individuals made. Writing, he said, "must teach men soberness: to be awake". Herbert certainly stuck to his part of the deal.' Guardian 'Herbert's poetry has what T. S. Eliot called "the unpleasantness of great poetry". Or the cussedness. Existentially, temperamentally, poetically, he is a contrarian... The poetry, its attitudes, are designed to disconcert us. When he strikes an anti-attitude, its tonic purpose is to pain us and himself.' Craig Raine, Daily Telegraph 'Zbigniew Herbert's Collected Works 1956-1998 - witty, ironic, classical - will survive the test of time and do much to establish him as one of the 20th-century greats.' James Hopkin, Books of the Year 2008, Independent"
