Reviews

"To Begin Where I Am stands as the most complete one-volume edition of Milosz's prose writings available in English by "arguably the greatest living poet." --Edward Hirsch, The New York Times Book Review

"Milosz's vigorous and sinewy prose is that of a man of a particular historical moment...The reader will find, in both the expository essays and the incomparable portraits of his contemporaries, Milosz's characteristic intensity, momentum, and savage intelligence." --Helen Vendler, Harper's Magazine

"Extraordinary...These 400 or so pages document the development, over seven decades, of a great mind." --The Economist

"Beguiling...[Milosz] displays his genius for wedding palpable, personal loss to larger themes...[To Begin Where I Am] grants privileged access to a singular literary mind." --Carlin Romano, The Philadelphia Inquirer

"[This collection] could not have come at a better time...A remarkable body of work...Enlightening." --Cynthia L. Haven, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
