Without End - New and Selected Poems
by Adam Zagajewski
translated by Clare Cavanagh
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, January 2001

This selection draws from Adam Zagajewski's English-language collections, both in and out of print; it also includes work from his early books, Communiqué and Butcher Shop, as well as new poems that are among Zagajewski's most refreshing and rewarding: meditations on human frailty and vigor, they are vividly imagined, of great clarity of thought and scrupulous attention to the natural world. In Clare Cavanagh's lucid, graceful translations these poems share the vocation that allows us, in Zagajewski's words, "to experience astonishment and to stop still in that astonishment for a long moment or two."

Of Zagajewski, Nobel Laureate Joseph Brodsky said, "Seldom has the muse spoken to anyone with such clarity and urgency."
