Translator, candidate of philological sciences Natalia Sydiachenko will tell about the novel in the context of Czesław Miłosz's other books.
Moderator: Andrii Savchuk, director of the “Universe” publishing house.
The novel “The Issa Valley” by Czesław Miłosz, laureate of the Nobel Prize of 1980 (1911-2004), is the third book, after the “Selected works” poetry collection (2008) and “The Land of Ulro” essay (2015), of the prominent Polish author which is printed in the “Universe” publishing house. In spite of being prosaic, the book is written in a very poetic language and tells about the author’s discovery of his roots. The protagonist of “The Issa Valley”, the boy Tomasz (author’s alter ego), seeks answers to the questions: “How do you become who you are?” The wise and deeply philosophical book, as is always the case with Miłosz, prompts to ponder about the visible identity of the character and about one’s own nature as well as about the human nature in general.
