Recovering a Reverence for Being

Czeslaw Milosz, the Polish Poet, was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1980. His most recent works include A Book of Luminous Things: An International Anthology of Poetry (Harcourt Brace, 1998) and Roadside Dog (Harcourt Brace, 1998).

Nathan Gardels, editor of NPQ, spoke with Milosz at his home in the Berkeley Hills, overlooking San Francisco Bay, where the poet lives part of the year when not in residence in Krakow, Poland.

The 250th anniversary of Goethe's birth in 1749 is being celebrated in Weimar, Germany, designated the "capital of European Culture" for 1999.
