    An observation into life it's tragedies it's beauty it's boringness These are outlined in Czeslaw Milosz's poetry work A focus of tragedy the ambitious society the seek for money instead of basic life elements is seen among the beautifully composed phrases by Milosz Nathan did a great job by citing the corresponding works of poetry to show another element of life to show the world about I recommend this book to someone who knows about poetry and likes to discover new perspectives of the world through poetry This uote summarises the theme of the book's insight into Milosz's work We leave the poem with a sense that pathos permeates all of our brief joys in the blind moments between the vast grindings of impersonal cause and effect

    I read this book as part of a readingdiscussion with my dear brother I was familiar with Milosz’s poetry the book had been gifted by my brother back in the 80s but this study creates a detailed biographical context for understanding his writing It helps to be versed in the academic discourse surrounding notions of humanism as well as to be tolerant of a search for truth that involves accepting contradictions between such things as rationalism and faith

    A new humorless generation is now arisingIt takes in deadly earnest all we received with laughterIt's upsetting how poems written in occupied Poland can fit so easily in the Trump age
