Summary:
"Tadeusz Rozewicz is Poland's most popular and influential poet. Born in 1921, he belongs to the generation of writers whose work was indelibly marked by Poland's traumatic and tragic war-time experience. Rejecting traditional aesthetic values - which struck him as offensive in the face of what he had witnessed - Rozewicz has created a stark, direct poetry rooted in common speech."--BOOK JACKET.
