The Year of Czesław Miłosz is now at its peak, with the young poets of Poland marching in his footsteps
Free Over Blood presents the work of several generations of Polish poets, fresh talent mixed in with the most established household names, all of them widely published, winners of Poland’s most prestigious literary prizes. Each poet presents five pieces of verse, in the original Polish and in English translation.
Each book is hand stitched using the Japanese Yamato / monk style binding and made specifically to individual order and is accompanied by a DVD of Everything Poetry Still, a documentary showing one of the translators, Marek Kaźmierski, travelling round Poland, translating the poems while also discovering their country of origin.
