Summaries and Reviews
A personal selection from the Nobel laureate of some three hundred poems--both instructional and inspirational--from around the world includes the work of Elizabeth Bishop, Tu Fu, Jean Follain, Walt Whitman, and other notable writers. Reprint. description: Product Description:
"A collection of 300 poems from writers around the world, selected and edited by Nobel laureate Czeslaw Milosz
Czesław Miłosz's A Book of Luminous Things—his personal selection of poems from the past and present—is a testament to the stunning varieties of human experience, offered up so that we may see the myriad ways that experience can be shared in words and images. Miłosz provides a preface to each of these poems, divided into thematic (and often beguiling) sections, such as “Travel,” “History,” and “The Secret of a Thing,” that make the reading as instructional as it is inspirational and remind us how powerfully poetry can touch our minds and hearts.
