Kean University and the Holocaust Resource Center invite you to “Conversation with poet and musician Grzegorz Kwiatkowski” as part of the Kristallnacht Commemorative Program. Meeting led by Dr. Joanna Sliwa will take place on Tuesday, November 9.
Richard Deming, poet, art critic, and the Director of Creative Writing at Yale University, commenting on “Crops”:
“Grzegorz Kwiatkowski once said, “I think that we should be conscious about the evil that is inside every one of us.” In his collection Crops, Kwiatkowski’s taut, tense poems sound the depths of our darkest history. Masterfully rendered by Peter Constantine, one of our most brilliant translators, Crops reveals that the unforgettable is also the undeniable. Is it beautiful? I say it is powerfully necessary, unrelentingly direct. I say it burns.”
Join us for a coffee break conversation as we celebrate the publication of Crops, the latest chapbook in Rain Taxi’s OHM Editions series, a stunning collection of verse by the award-winning Polish poet and musician Grzegorz Kwiatkowski! In this heart-rending work, so beautifully translated into English by Peter Constantine, Kwiatkowski warns “We must not forget our tragic past because it might well return.” At this special launch event, Kwiatkowski and Constantine will read from and discuss the history that informs these poems, as well as the role poetry can play in offering testimony and hope in our troubled world.
