This World Is a Fairy Tale: Conversation with Jerzy Jarniewicz

Please, join Polish Slavic Center and Brooklyn Public Library for a conversation with Jerzy Jarniewicz, author of a freshly published poetry collection "Landless Boys", translated from the Polish by Piotr Florczyk, and available from MadHat Press. Saturday, April 13 2024, 6:30 pm – 8:00 PM.

In these poems sacrilege and the sacred repeatedly weave through each other. Sex and eros are neither romanticized nor profaned, but simply — and inexorably — present. Grand-scale human thinking becomes diminished by its proximity to daily activity, and private lives exist quietly inside the machinery of history and civilization. By the end, this ambitious, brilliant, understated book has offered an astonishingly broad depiction of human experience — inside of which the individual mind is forever navigating the inescapability of both the body and the present moment.

Wayne Miller
