Synopsis

Zbigniew Herbert is one of the outstanding poets of the last century. This exceptional new translation brings together, for the first time in English in one volume, his entire poetic output - from his first book of poems, String of Light, in 1956, to his final volume, previously unpublished in English, Epilogue of the Storm. As Joseph Brodsky said of Herbert's Selected Poems, this definitive collection is 'bound for a much longer haul than any of us can anticipate'.
