Zagajewski’s most recent books in English are Eternal Enemies (2008) and Without End: New and Selected Poems (2002), which was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award. Zagajewski’s other collections of poetry include Mysticism for Beginners (1999), Canvas (1991) and Tremor: Selected Poems (1985). He is also the author of a book of essays and literary sketches, Two Cities: On Exile, History and the Imagination (1995) and of Solidarity, Solitude: Essays. Zagajewski is one of the most well-known and highly regarded contemporary Polish poets in Europe and the United States. His luminous, searching poems are imbued by a deep engagement with history, art and life. He enjoys a wide international readership and his poetry survives translation with unusual power.

This is a Tuesday night performance
“Seldom has the muse…spoken to anyone with such clarity and urgency as in Zagajewski’s case.” —Joseph Brodsky
