This book is not for the general reader, but written in a direct, personal manner, should also interest those who are not specialists in the subjects discussed. Covering 200 pages, the essays are predominantly concerned with modern Polish and modern English language poetry, with problems of translating poetry, and with the relationship between poetry and philosophy. There is also some material dealing with music, the visual arts and religious belief. Discussions cover the poetry of Norwid, Różewicz, Szymborska, Herbert, Emily Dickinson, Gerald Manley Hopkins and TS Eliot, the philosophy of Heraclitus, St Anselm and Roman Ingarden, and the paintings of Vermeer and Edward Hopper.
