Description  more details

"Published to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the passing of one of the greatest Polish poets of modern era 'Evening on the Hudson" constitutes the most comprehensive anthology of Jan Lechon's work in English. A generous sampling of his American verse is provided in facing-page format, with the original Polish versions accompanied by English verse translations, many of them printed here for the first time. These are followed by selections from his New York journal, and the full text of the essay 'American Transformations', both of which startle the contemporary reader with their continuing resonance in the America of the twenty-first century. Jan Lechon was one of the most distinguished members of the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences in America. He regularly published articles in the Insitute's Bulletin (the precursor of 'The Polish Review'). Many of these articles, on both literary and political themes, are brought together to round out the present volume. Judiciously edited, introduced and annotated by Beata Dorosz of the Institute of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences (Instytut Badan Literackich), Jan Lechon's 'Evening on the Hudson' is an important addition to Polish literary studies in English."
