about

A collection of 300 poems from writers around the world, selected and edited by Nobel laureate Czeslaw Milosz CzesAéaw MiAéosz's A Book of Luminous Things -his personal selection of poems from the past and present-is a testament to the stunning varieties of human experience, offered up so that we may see the myriad ways that experience can be shared in words and images. MiAéosz provides a preface to each of these poems, divided into thematic (and often beguiling) sections, such as 'Travel,' 'History,' and 'The Secret of a Thing,' that make the reading as instructional as it is inspirational and remind us how powerfully poetry can touch our minds and hearts. ""
