In December, the publishing house Neputns is expected to publish a collection of poems by Czesław Miłosz in the velvet poetry series.
Ingmāra Balode: "Weight of poet's words in the eyes of the public are also given by external decorations, awards, which the author of this book is not lacking especially in the second half of his life; as you know, fame tends to bring creative slack or fatigue, but not to this poet. In 1980, Czesław Miłosz was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "for his work, in which the vulnerability of man in a world of irreconcilable conflict is revealed through uncompromising ambition"."
Editor of the collection - Jānis Elsbergs, translators - Ingmāra Balode, Uldis Bērziņš, Hermanis Marģers Majevskis, Māris Salējs. Design: Anna Aizsilniece.
