Tadeusz Rozewicz: They Came to See a Poet Selected Poems

by Tadeusz Rozewicz

Tadeusz Rozewicz: They Came to See a Poet Selected Poems Synopsis

Tadeusz Rozewicz is Poland's most popular and influential poet. He belongs to the generation whose lives were indelibly marked by Poland's traumatic war-time experience. Rejecting traditional aesthetic values, Rozewicz created a stark, direct poetry rooted in common speech. This title contains extra poems and an additional preface by Adam Czerniawski.

He lives in Wales.
