FROM THE PUBLISHER - Miroslav Holub, who has been called the most important poet working in Europe today, is chief research immunologist at the Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine in Prague. He writes about everyday life and integrates scientific thought into his poetry, ‘so that,’ as he has noted, ‘logical, analytical thinking about the human condition, and not abstract idealism, will result.’ Ewald Osers has said in London Magazine that ‘Holub brings to poetry a way of thinking previously associated only with scientific thought and thus tries to break down the wall between C.P. Snow’s ‘two cultures.’ Miroslav Holub has published thirteen books of poetry and four books of prose and essays. While three collections of his poems have appeared in England, SAGITTAL SECTION is his first American book. Many of the poems in this new volume were written or reconceived while Holub was Guest-Writer-in-Residence at Oberlin College during spring, 1979. The foreword was contributed by Dr. Lewis Thomas, the renowned author of LIVES OF A CELL and THE MEDUSA AND THE SNAIL. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 9941
