About this product
- DescriptionCyprian Norwid, born in 1821 near Warsaw, is one of the most invative and idiosyncratic figures in Polish literature. His unique poetry is w recognized as among Poland's finest. Largely self-taught, he left Poland at the age of 21, moving widely around Europe - befriended by Chopin among others - before travelling to America. Persistently dogged by financial crises, he was forced to return to Paris in 1854. There he spent the rest of his life, dying in a hostel for Polish insurrection veterans in Ivry in 1883. Norwid's work is introduced by Bogdan Czaykowski, the eminent Polish poet, who is also a ted scholar and critic.
- Author BiographyAdam Czerniawski, born in Warsaw in 1934, has translated widely from Polish (including Tadeusz Rozewicz's selected poetry, 'They Came to See a Poet', also from Anvil) as well as publishing poetry, stories, criticism and a memoir in his first language.
