The Collected Poems 1956-1998 free pdf This title includes the collected poems - together in English for the first time - of one of the greatest twentieth-century poets. Zbigniew Herbert is one of the outstanding poets of the last century. This exceptional new translation brings together, for the first time in English in one volume, his entire poetic output - from his first book of poems, "String of Light", in 1956, to his final volume, previously unpublished in English, "Epilogue of the Storm". As Joseph Brodsky said of "Herbert's Selected Poems", this definitive collection is 'bound for a much longer haul than any of us can anticipate'.
