Anotace:

Legends of Modernity, now available in English for the first time, brings together some of Czesław Miłosz's early essays and letters, composed in German-occupied Warsaw during the winter of 1942-43. "Why did the European spirit succumb to such a devastating fiasco?" the young Miłosz asks. Half a century later, when Legends of Modernity saw its first publication in Poland, Miłosz said: "If everything inside you is agitation, hatred, and despair, write measured, perfectly calm sentences ..." While the essays here reflect a "perfect calm," the accompanying contemporaneous exchange of letters between Miłosz and Jerzy Andrzejewski express the raw emotions of "agitation, hatred and despair" experienced by these two close friends struggling to understand the proximate causes of this debacle of western civilization, and the relevance, if any, of the teachings of the Catholic church.
