Synopsis:

Canvas, Zagajewski's second book to appear in English, features all of this poet's distinctive traits. In these sixty-one poems, syntax explodes, masses of detail spill from profuse catalogs, lines break in ways apt but unexpected, and compressed lyrics alternate with extended riffs. European culture is the poet's native province throughout these explorations, and time is a recurrent metaphysical concern.

About the Author:

Adam Zagajewski was born in Lvov in 1945. His books include the poetry collections Tremor (1985), Canvas (1992), and Mysticism for Beginners (1998), and the essay collections Two Cities (1995) and Another Beauty (2000). He lives in Paris and Houston, where he teaches at the University of Houston.

Renata Gorczynski is an essayist, a literary critic, and a teacher of journalism. She lives in Gdynia, Poland.

Benjamin Ivry is a poet ("Paradise for the Portuguese Queen"), biographer (of Ravel, Poulenc, and Rimbaud), and translator.

C. K. Williams has been awarded the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize for his poetry. He teaches at Princeton University.
