Description  more details

"The 14 essays that make up poet Zagajewski's 'defense' are an engaging warm and witty blend of literary comment and memoir, passionate about aesthetic matters but refreshingly free of personal rancor. Zagajewski was born in Poland at the end of WWII; his career is inexorably bound up with the fate of his homeland, and his essays are full of the official but fierce patriotism common to the country often wryly called 'God's playground'."
Farrar, Strauss and Giroux New York 2005, 208 pages (soft cover cover) - translated from the Polish by Clare Cavanagh
