Exile as Destiny: Czesław Miłosz and America

Monday, October 24, 2011 to Saturday, December 17, 2011

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

 

He had his home, posthumous, in the town of New Haven,
In a white building, behind walls
Of translucent marble like turtle shell
—Czesław Miłosz, from "Beinecke Library." Provinces. New York: Ecco Press, 1991.

The life of Czesław Miłosz (1911-2004), Polish poet, novelist, diplomat, and Nobel Laureate, spanned a time of political upheavals and social turmoil. He lived in Nazi-occupied Warsaw, i n the Paris of exiled literati, and in the United States, perched atop the Berkeley hills with a view o f San Francisco Bay. The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library celebrates the centennial of Czes 22;aw Miłosz, renowned author of Bells in Winter, Captive Mind and Native Re alm, with an exhibition drawn from the library's holdings. The manuscripts, documents, and photogr aphs on display reveal lesser-known aspects of Miłosz’s multifaceted relationship with Ameri ca, with his adopted home in California, with fellow émigré authors, and with the English lan guage.
