Intensive Care: Selected and New Poems
Author: Miroslav Holub
Editor: David Young
Publisher: Oberlin College Press (1996)
This collection spans almost 40 years of writing, much of it under circumstances that involved risk and silence, living under Communism in Czechoslovakia, pursuing a career as a scientist, and carrying on the 20th century's experimental tradition as represented by artists like Arp, Miro, and William Carlos Williams. By the time of his death in 1998, Miroslav Holub had become one of the most widely acclaimed poets on the planet.
"An excellent introduction to the entire range of Holub's output, Intensive Care will be numbered among the works by which the times we live in will be remembered and known."
