Poetry. Translated into Polish by Adam Szyper. Stanley Kunitz views poetry as "the telling of the stories of the soul" and "a form of spiritual transformation." He eloquently states "If we want to know what it felt like to be alive at any given moment in the long odyssey of the race, it is to poetry we must turn." PASSING THROUGH won a National book award in 1995. This collection of the original work, side-by-side with the Polish translations, captures the dynamic spirit of a powerful voice. A summe cum laude graduate of Harvard, Kunitz has received numerous honors including the Pullitzer Prize, the National Endowment for the Arts Senior Fellowship, the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Walt Whitman Citation for Merit, the National Medal of Arts, and the Frost Medal, among others. Before his death in 2006, Kunitz taught for many years at Columbia University.
