Sobbing Superpower: Selected Poems of Tadeusz Różewicz
Author: Tadeusz Różewicz
Translator: Joanna Trzeciak
Publisher: W. W. Norton (2013)
Widely held to be the most influential Polish poet of a generation that includes Czesław Miłosz and Wisława Szymborska, Tadeusz Różewicz gives voice in the sharpest, most disturbing way to the crisis of values that has plagued our civilization. Joanna Trzeciak's new translation displays Rózewicz's supernatural simplicity, his stark diction and sudden turns.
"An anti-poet relentlessly, even ruthlessly determined to tell the truth, however painful it may be."
