About the Book

Through a critical introduction and translations of a selection of poems from Tomasz Rózycki’s five collections, this volume introduces readers to a contemporary Polish poet who expands on the historicism of Czeslaw Milosz and Zbigniew Herbert. Rózycki explores both personal and collective memory in hypnotic and fiercely exacting poems.

Tomasz Rózycki is the author of five books of poetry, most recently The Colonies, and the book-length poem Twelve Stations, winner of the Koscielski Prize. His work has been translated into numerous European languages, and he has been nominated for the NIKE Prize, Poland’s top literary award.
