The Captive Mind

By Czeslaw Milosz
Knopf, 1953
251 pp. $3.50

From 1945 to 1951 Mr. Milosz put his literary talents at the service of the Polish Government. Having broken with the régime, he here presents a most sensitive analysis of the plight, and also the lures and moral pitfalls, besetting the intellectual working in the Soviet Imperium. In large measure a perceptive self-examination, this work is unique in its penetration of the reasons--beyond those of brute force--which have brought many fine minds to advancing the Stalinist "New Faith."
