Poland Spring: Ryszard Krynicki

CLARE CAVANAGH, ALISSA VALLES, RYSZARD KRYNICKI and EDWARD HIRSCH

Born in a Nazi labor camp in Austria in 1943, Ryszard Krynicki went on to become one of post-war Poland’s most significant poets, as well as an acclaimed editor, publisher, and translator. Through poetry, publication, and intellectual

activism, he resisted communist authorities of the Polish People’s Republic. His participation in a campaign of intellectuals against undemocratic changes to Poland’s constitution saw his work banned between 1976 and 1980. Krynicki joins his translators Clare Cavanagh and Alissa Valles and fellow poet Edward Hirsch to read and discuss the new release of his selected poems, Magnetic Point, and the first uncensored, English-language translation of Our Life Grows, first published in Paris in 1978.
