In more than seventy poems gathered in I’m Half of Your Heart: Selected Poems, 1967–2017, we encounter a poet who is as politically outspoken as he is lyrically private. Fascinated by the quotidian bric-a-brac, keenly attuned to the plight of the less fortunate among us, and immersed in timeless philosophical, historical, and aesthetic peregrinations, Kornhauser remains our contemporary by speaking loud and clear about what it is that makes us human. This career-spanning volume provides readers in the English-speaking world with the largest ever selection of poems by one of Poland’s premier poets.
