Tomasz Różycki poem and blog post in PEN America online

Tomasz Różycki has a poem (“Scorched Maps,” trans. Mira Rosenthal) and a blogpost about the poem up on the PEN America blog: http://penamerica.blogspot.com.

Różycki was born in 1970 and lives in Opole, in southwestern Poland. He is widely considered one of the foremost poets of his generation, publishing regularly in the important literary journal Zeszyty Literackie, alongside authors like Adam Zagajewski, Ewa Kuryluk, Stanisław Barańczak, and Clare Cavanagh. He has seven books in Polish and one in English (The Forgotten Keys, translated by Mira Rosenthal; Zephyr Press, 2007), and he and his translator are currently working on a second book, Colonies, for which Rosenthal has received awards from the NEA and PEN.

Różycki will be the first writer to take part in the Polish Cultural Institute‘s Poland-U.S. Artists-in-Residency Exchange Program, as a guest of the Vermont Studio Center this coming October-November.
