Riassunto: The great Polish poet Miron Bia?oszewski was twenty-two on August 1, 1944, when he went on an errand for his mother and ran into history. With Soviet forces on the outskirts of Warsaw, the city revolted against five years of Nazi occupation, an uprising that began in a spirit of heroic optimism but ended tragically sixty-three days later. The Nazis fought back ruthlessly, reducing Warsaw to rubble while slaughtering some 200,000 people, mostly through mass execution. The Red Army simply looked on.
 
Bia?oszewski?s blow-by-blow account of the uprising brings it alive in all its desperate urgency. Here we are in the shoes of a young man slipping back and forth across German lines, dodging sniper bullets, collapsing with exhaustion, rescuing the wounded, burying the dead. An indispensable and unforgettable act of witness, A Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising is also a major work of literature. Bia?oszewski writes in short, stabbing, splintered, breathless sentences attuned to ?the glaring identity of ?now.? ? His book displays a wild white-knuckled poetry that resists the terrible destruction it records.
 
Translator Madeline Levine has extensively revised her 1970 translation and passages that were unpublishable in Communist Poland have been restored.

L'autore: Miron Bia?oszewski (1922?1983) was one of Poland?s greatest postwar poets, a playwright, and an actor. Deported to a German work camp following the Warsaw Uprising, he escaped a month later and eventually returned to the devastated city after the war. His first volume of poetry, Obroty rzeczy (Revolution of Things), appeared in 1956 in Warsaw and created a sensation. This was followed by several other collections of poetry, A Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising, other narrative prose, and travelogues. Idiosyncratic and notoriously difficult to translate, he became a minor cult figure in the United States with the appearance of The Revolution of Things: Selected Poems of Miron Bia?oszewski (1974).
 
Madeline Levine is a professor of Slavic languages and literatures at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
