Czeslaw Milosz: 1911-2004

I am not an avid reader of poetry (although that, to an extent, is changing), but Milosz's passing on August 14 was the loss of a great man.

Leon Wieseltier's elegy in this week's Book Review is deeply moving. Read it, and then pick up Milosz's New and Collected Poems.

Or, better yet, buy a copy for my broke-ass self. :-)
