Review:

"A significant presence in Polish letters....Czerniawski writes distinctive and challenging poems....[He]shows a profound concern with language, consciousness, experience, identity, and culture. His poetry offers readers the pleasures of watching a highly engaged Anglo-Polish mind at work and play."-Translation Review "Adam Czerniawski is one of the most outstanding and also among the most versatile of Polish writers."-Piotr Wilczek of Kultura "Anglophone readers can be grateful for the art of translation that brings them this bilingual volume....His poems often blend his recollections of Poland's history with ancient myths, a technique caught by Higgins in striking images and rhythms....On the CD accompanying the book, Czerniawski reads the poems in Polish...offering the ear a richness the eye has already beheld."-CHOICE "One of the best poets of our time."-Marian Kisiel of Tworczosc
