Product Details


One of the greatest world poets of the nineteenth century. —Roman Jakobson

He carried his soul around with him as if it were some kind of numismatic rarity, unknown to anyone, unwanted, useless . . . He resembled a stone salvaged from some marvelous edifice, which somewhere, sometime had burnt down completely. —Jósef Tokarzewicz

Hen ventures to describe what is indescribable, and . . . he succeeds —Joanna Janecka Of the things of this world only two will remain, Two only: poetry and goodness . . . and nothing else… —Cyprian Norwid

Poignant . . . flows onto the page with a melodic rush, conveyed in Borchardt’s nuanced rhymes and assonances . . . Off the page leaps surprise after surprise. —The Arts Fuse

One of Europe’s greatest poets and thinkers. We are all deeply indebted to him. . . . Norwid left an opus from which shines the light that lets us more deeply penetrate the truth of our being as human persons . . . He insistently reminds us that without heroism humanity ceases to be itself. Cyprian Norwid was the man of hope. —Pope John Paul II
