Description  more details

"The first English translation and publication of a Polish poet whose struggles with spiritual issues spark comparisons to Czeslaw Milosz. Her poems record the struggles of a rational mind with religious faith, addressing loneliness and uncertainty in a direct, unsentimental manner. While exploring the meaning of loss and grief, and the yearning for love, Kamienska's poetry still expresses a quiet humor and a pervasive sense of gratitude for human existence and for a myriad of creatures: hedgehogs, birds, and "young leaves willing to open up to the sun." In the quiet space of Kamienska's poems "the tenderness of things enfolds you" and words speak as eloquently as the silence."
Published by "Paraclete Press" Brewster 2007, 133 pages (hard cover)
