Fourteen Poems
Oscar V de L. Milosz

O.V. de L. Milosz was a Lithuanian turned Frenchman. As translator Kenneth Rexroth notes in his introduction to this bilingual edition: "The poems I have given here are mostly early. They are simple, direct elegies, intensely personal... Their most outstanding special characteristic is an extreme delicacy of tone, a sentimental irony which is without hope but which is not without humor, the very genius of the common French speech... Milosz, with his foreign ear, caught [the complexities and overtones of French speech] and has transmitted them with all their bitter wisdom. So, a Lithuanian, he is in this regard more French than the French."
