Item Description...
Overview
Kamieska came of age during the horrors of the Nazi occupation of Poland and lived under the oppression of Communism. These experiences, and the sudden death of her husband, led her to engage with the Bible and the great religious thinkers of the 20th century. Her poems record the struggles of a rational mind with religious faith, addressing loneliness and uncertainty in a direct, unsentimental manner. While exploring the meaning of loss and grief, and the yearning for love, Kamienska's poetry still expresses a quiet humor and a pervasive sense of gratitude for human existence and for a myriad of creatures: hedgehogs, birds, and "young leaves willing to open up to the sun." In the quiet space of Kamieska's poems "the tenderness of things enfolds you" and words speak as eloquently as the silence.

Publishers Description
Kamienska came of age during the horrors of the Nazi occupation of Poland and lived under Communism. These experiences, as well as the sudden death of her husband, led her to engagement with the Bible and the great religious thinkers of the 20th century.
Her poems record the struggles of a rational mind with religious faith, addressing loneliness and uncertainty in a remarkably direct, unsentimental manner. Her spiritual quest has resulted in extraordinary poems on Job, other biblical personalities, and victims of the Holocaust. Other poems explore the meaning of loss, grief, and human life. Still, her poetry expresses a fundamentally religious sense of gratitude for her own existence and that of other human beings, as well as for myriad creatures, such as hedgehogs, birds and "young leaves willing to open up to the sun."

A Treasure  Feb 18, 2008
Congratulations! How moving the translation of Kamienska's work Astonishments. It is indeed that. I am grateful you brought her to us and hhope more of her poetry will be translated by you two.
 
Handsome edition of a great selection of poetry!  Jul 17, 2007
I was lucky to get my hands on an advanced copy of Astonishments. It's really a handsome book with a large selection of very interesting poems. I highly recommend for anyone interested in poetry. It also makes an elegant gift with it's hard cover, meaty substance, interesting variety of writing styles (the selection includes fragments from her notebooks) and nice quality paper. Plus, the cover art looks good on your coffee table.
