Summary "One of Poland's most important poets, Adam Zagajewski left his childhood home in Gliwice to study philosophy in the ancient city of Krakow. Another Beauty is the retelling of this stage in the development of his poetic sensibility, a period of double liberation: first from the official lies and imposed political collectivism of the regime and later from the imposed intellectual collectivism of the opposition. It is also the story of how he strayed from the straight and scholarly path into reveries of music and poetry."
"In this memoir he observes the eccentricities of his professors and student peers, wrestles with the absurdity and hovering menace of Communist politics, and illuminates the strange byways of literary history; from Ovid to Saint Augustine to Czeslaw Milosz."--Jacket.
