Czeslaw Milosz “And Yet the Books” – Lola's Curmudgeonly Musings

Well, it has not been an auspicious first half of February. The never-ending migraine starts and stops and starts and stops, and sitting in front of this screen is well nigh impossible. Click on the link to see all of them. Hope you enjoy. And yet the books will be there on the shelves, separate beings, That appeared once, still wet As shining chestnuts under a tree in autumn, And, touched, coddled, began to live In spite of fires on the horizon, castles blown up, Tribes on the march, planets in motion.

Lunch Poems: Robert Hass Reads Czesław Miłosz

Tag: Czeslaw Milosz “And Yet the Books”

And yet the books will be there on the shelves, separate beings, That appeared once, still wet As shining chestnuts under a tree in autumn, And, touched, coddled, began to live In spite of fires on the horizon, castles blown up, Tribes on the march, planets in motion. So much more durable Than we are, whose frail warmth Cools down with memory, disperses, perishes. Yet the books will be there on the shelves, well born, Derived from people, but also from radiance, heights. One year I decided that I would decorate one of my teaching rooms with my collection of P oems on the Underground posters that I had kept rolled up in a drawer for years. I had noticed that the gap between the top of the display boards and the ceiling was exactly the same width of the posters. My classroom became one long tube carriage. After a year or so the posters began to peel off the walls.

And yet the books will be there on the shelves, separate beings, That appeared once, still wet As shining chestnuts under a tree in autumn, And, touched, coddled, began to live In spite of fires on the horizon, castles blown up, Tribes on the march, planets in motion. So much more durable Than we are, whose frail warmth Cools down with memory, disperses, perishes. Yet the books will be there on the shelves, well born, Derived from people, but also from radiance, heights. Share this poem:. Autoplay next video.

Jump to navigation. These words, by Nobel prize-winning poet Czeslaw Milosz, celebrate the mysterious and redemptive power of books. Milosz spent World War II in Nazi-occupied Warsaw; he saw his books banned for decades by the Communist regime in Poland; he saw first-hand the efforts of totalitarian regimes to burn or suppress the written word. Books are living things to Milosz. And they persist, despite the turmoil of history, the violent disruptions of nations and upheavals of the earth. It is chilling to recall that less than 20 years after the book was created, the Jews of Spain were gone — murdered, banished, driven underground.

~“And Yet the Books,” Czeslaw Milosz (d); translated from the Polish by Czeslaw Milosz and Robert Hass, from Scanning the Century: The Penguin Book .

Good thoughts. I like what you had to say, especially about nature and the connection between it all. Very insightful! Leaving Cert unseen poem HL Now reading this I think that I might just have scraped some marks.
