Still Life With A Bridle: Essays and Apocryphas.
by [Essays] Herbert, Zbigniew.

Publisher Information:
Jonathan Cape, London: 1993.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. The Polish poet here devotes his talent for observation to the essay form. This collection includes: Delta; The Price of Art; The Bitter Smell of Tulips; Gerard Terborch: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie; Still Life with a Bridle; The Nonheroic Subject; plus 10 apocryphas (unauthorized writings that would not be included in the New Testament.) Poet of the historical, the philosophical, the political, the individual, Herbert's sparse, carefully-crafted lines and ironic tonality earned him an international reputation. At the time of his death in 1998 at age 73, he was called by the poet Robert Hass, "one of the most influential European poets of the last half-century, and perhaps—even more than his contemporaries Czeslaw Milosz and Wislawa Szymborska—the defining Polish poet of the post-war years."
