    Bringing gravity and grace to his meditations on art, society, and history, Zagajewski wears his erudition lightly, with a disarming blend of modesty and humor. His topics range from autobiography to considerations of artistic friends past and present; to intellectual and psychological portraits of cities he has known, east and west; to a dazzling thumbnail sketch of postwar Polish poetry. Recipient of the 2004 Neustadt International Prizze for Literature.

    Canvas, Zagajewski's second book to appear in English, features all of this poet's distinctive traits. In these sixty-one poems, syntax explodes, masses of detail spill from profuse catalogs, lines break in ways apt but unexpected, and compressed lyrics alternate with extended riffs. European culture is the poet's native province throughout these explorations, and time is a recurrent metaphysical concern.

    They are widely read, thoughtful in their consideration of the changes in their own culture over the past decades, curious, fascinated and wise. This collection of articles by leading writers in Polish of the 20th century evokes the image of a life shared but not shared, living in the same building but in rooms facing different directions. The 25 writers, some of whom are represented by several essays, comment upon culture, social activism, politics, the role of the artist in a time of transition, the act of writing and having written, the cost of honesty and dishonesty, the terrorism of things past, the quality of hope and its disruptions, and the delicate and desperate act of setting pen to paper.
