Book News Annotation:

They are widely read, thoughtful in their consideration of the changes in their own culture over the past decades, curious, fascinated and wise. This collection of articles by leading writers in Polish of the 20th century evokes the image of a life shared but not shared, living in the same building but in rooms facing different directions. The 25 writers, some of whom are represented by several essays, comment upon culture, social activism, politics, the role of the artist in a time of transition, the act of writing and having written, the cost of honesty and dishonesty, the terrorism of things past, the quality of hope and its disruptions, and the delicate and desperate act of setting pen to paper. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Featuring 20th-century writers, including Nobel Prize winners Czeslaw Milosz and Wislawa Szymborska, as well as celebrated poet Zbigniew Herbert and internationally renowned Bruno Schulz, this collection captures the brilliance and originality of a literary culture rightly considered one of the most important and influential of our time. These writers are branded by the political realities of their country — creating literature out of the brutality of the World War II, under the numbing and inhibiting Communist reign, and finally within a free society, but one freighted with the weight of its history.
