Description

"One of the century's most important poets."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"One of the greatest poets of our time, perhaps the greatest."
--Joseph Brodsky

"Nobody tells the story of this age better than Czeslaw Milosz."
--New Republic

Commemorating the centenary year of Nobel Laureate Czeslaw Milosz, Selected and Last Poems 1934 - 2004 is a sterling collection of some of the finest works of one the most revered poets of our time--including more than forty later poems new to this edition and never before published in English. Selected and Last Poems is a perfect introduction for poetry readers who might still be unfamiliar with this literary giant's monumental body of work.
