Zbigniew Herbert
I turn to history not for lessons but to confront my experience with the experience of others and to win for myself a sense of responsibility for the state of the human conscience.
Herbert quotes
His poems, even in English, seem to me finer than anything currently being written by any English or American poet.
One always goes against the current to reach the wellsprings, it is the trash which flows with the current.
