Excerpt

the professors knife

The Trains

a freight train

cattle cars

a long string

passing through fields and woods

green meadows

grasses and wildflowers

so quietly the buzzing of bees can be heard

passing through mists

golden buttercups

marsh marigolds harebells

forget-me-nots

Vergissmeinnicht

this train

will never depart

from my memory the

pen rusts

flies off turning lovely in the light

of awoken spring

"Synopsis" by , Written in a pared-down, direct language, and filled with allusions to everything from philosophy to TV talk shows, the poetry of Tadeusz Rózewicz encompasses the complexity of human experience in the early 21st century. Rózewicz's unique voice, formed during his experiences as a member of the Polish resistance in World War II, and honed by decades living under communist rule, holds a merciless mirror up to the crimes and excesses of the poet's lifetime. In his eighties now, Rózewicz continues to be a prolific writer and an acerbic commentator on his life and times. This collection combines his latest three volumes: professor's knife, gray zone, and exit. These are extraordinary poems from an acknowledged European master.
