The Issa Valley by Czesław Miłosz( Book )

212 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in 18 languages and held by 1,804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas, the child-protagonist of The Issa Valley, is subject to both the contradictons of nature in this severe northern setting and the sometimes enchanting, sometimes brutal timbre of village life. There are deep pine and spruce forests, the grouse and the deer, and the hunter's gun. There is Magdalena, the beautiful mistress of the village priest, whose suicide unleashes her ghost to haunt the parish. There are also the loving grandparents with whom Thomas lives, who provide a balance to the not-quite-Dostoevskian devils that visit the villagers. In the end, Thomas is severed from his childhood and the Issa river, and leaves prepared for adventures beyond his valley. Poetic and richly imagined, The Issa Valley is a masterful work of fiction from one of our greatest living poets. --Publisher

Striving towards being : the letters of Thomas Merton and Czeslaw Milosz by Thomas Merton( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1958 Thomas Merton wrote an admiring letter to Czeslaw Milosz about his seminal work The Captive Mind. Milosz replied and thus began an animated correspondence which lasted until Merton's death in 1968. During this highly productive decade, Merton continued, a Trappist, to write about nonviolence and the monastic life. Milosz, meanwhile, was writing influential essays and translating the poetry of Aleksander Wat and Anna Swir. In this dynamic correspondence, Milosz and Merton differ in their views of the role of Communism, share thoughts about the power of literature, and contrast their views on the natural world. As different as Milosz and Merton were, they found common ground in their spiritual search and in a desire to understand the human race. A memorial to a great friendship between two of this century's celebrated men of letter, Striving Towards Being is a testament to the examined life

Exiles by Josef Koudelka( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of pictures by an acknowledged master of photography, now updated to include 11 new images, forms a document of the spiritual and physical state of exile. The sense of private mystery that fills these photographs - mostly taken during Koudelka's many years of wandering through Europe and the United States since leaving his native Czechoslovakia - speaks of passion and reserve, of his "rage to see". The images here interrogate and penetrate, and reflect the nature of alienation. The accompanying essay by Robert Delpire invokes the soul of man in search of a spiritual homeland."--Amazon
