Conversations With Czeslaw Milosz
Conversations With Czeslaw Milosz
By Ewa Czarnecka and Aleksander Fiut
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1987, 352 pp

For those to whom The Captive Mind was one of the intellectual thrillers of their generation, this book provides a whole new and larger dimension to Milosz-the diffident but dedicated poet who attempts to explain how he writes (sometimes automatically), who loves his home in Lithuania and is preoccupied with themes of exile and return, in time as well as space, and who worries about the effect of the Nobel prize on his image! A haunting book, a haunting man.
