Description

To find my home in one sentence, concise, as if hammered in metal. No to enchant anybody. Not to earn a lasting name in posterity. An unnamed need for order, for rhythm, for form, which three words are opposed to chaos and nothingness. -- Czeslaw Milosz

No native genius has mattered more to European poetry, it's spirituality and psychology, since Dante. Milosz's contribution to Polish literature, European literature and the entire Western Canon cannot be overestimated.
