Description  more details

"One of the most vibrant voices of our time, Adam Zagajewski is a modern master of the poetic form. His clear-eyed verse acknowledges atrocities past and present, as well as the everyday traumas of contemporary life, without ever sinking into cynical pessimism. Imbued with a uniquely sanguine perspective, his internationally acclaimed poems elevate and celebrate quotidian joys and fleeting moments of satisfaction.
This collection, deftly translated by Clare Cavanagh, finds the poet revisiting those themes that have long preoccupied him - the enduring imprint of history, the beauty of nature, the place of the exile. Unseen Hand is a moving meditation on the sublimity of everyday life."
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York 2012, 108 pages (soft cover)
