Road-side Dog

Czeslaw Milosz; Translated by the Author and Robert Hass

Farrar, Straus and Giroux

In this memorable collection of poems and essays, aphorisms and anecdotes, Milosz addresses a wide range of topics with extraordinary insight and a wry sense of humor. From reflections on youth and beauty to meditations on growing old, from thoughts on this century's dark history to considerations of the poet's place at this stage, the master-poet reveals his inimitable gift for observation in a series of simple, beautiful prose poems. Remarkable for its brevity, spontaneity, and generosity of spirit, Road-side Dog is one of the most engaging works to date from one of the greatest poets of the modern age.
