A treat for readers of the Times Literary Supplement: a free, limited-edition audiobook of Czesław Miłosz's poetry read by Stephen Fry. This selection ranges across his rich life and work, from his early poems in the 1930s to his final years; from war-torn Poland, through Communism, exile in France and the USA, to his return to his beloved Krakow.

It gave me enormous pleasure to read these poems, which I count as amongst the best written in any language since the war. It would give me even more pleasure if I thought that this recording might bring Milosz and his dazzling mixture of honesty, insight and pure poetic instinct to a wider, English-speaking readership. 
Stephen Fry 

This major project is a co-production of the Polish Cultural Institute in London and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw. It commemorates both the Polish Presidency of the EU Council and the Miłosz Year 2011
