Majestic, universal, and supremely cultured, Czerniawski's lyrical poems remain wonderfully accessible in Higgins' new English translations. As Czerniawski says, "This book is not a text-book on astro-physics, neuroscience, German metaphysics, Fermat's last theorem or nuclear biology. It is a collection of poems, a work of literature. It ought to appeal to people who appreciate poetry and will be ignored by people who have no time for it. That's all that can usefully be said on this topic."
