These are the first two pages of a poem in Polish by Czeslaw Milosz, who was a Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at UC Berkeley from 1960-1978 and the recipient of the 1980 Nobel Prize in Literature. The translation on the facing page is by Robert Hass, Milosz' friend, colleague and frequent translator, who is a Distinguished Professor in Poetry and Poetics in the UC Berkeley Department of English. Hass was Poet Laureate of the United States from 1995-1997 and a co-recipient of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for his own poetry. The poem and its translation appear in The Separate Notebooks (click on the link for library locations). Search OskiCat, the UCB Library catalog, for works by either poet or for more of the translations they collaborated on together.
