Canvas

Adam Zagajewski; Translated by Renata Gorczynski, Benjamin Ivry, and C. K. Williams
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Farrar, Straus and Giroux

In Canvas, a collection of sixty-one poems, Zagajewski's distinctive poetic signature is powerfully in evidence: syntax explodes, masses of detail spill from profuse catalogs, lines break in ways apt but unexpected, compressed lyrics alternate with extended tours de force. European culture proves the poet's native province and time is a recurrent metaphysical concern.
