Like Native Realm, Czeslaw Milosz’s autobiography written thirty years earlier, A Year of the Hunter is a “search for self-definition.” A diary of one year in the Nobel laureate’s life, 1987-88, it concerns itself as much with his experience of remembering-his youth in Wilno and the writers’ groups of Warsaw and Paris; his life in Berkeley in the sixties; his time spent with poets and poetry-as with the actual events that shape his days. Throughout, Milosz tries to account for the discontinuity between the man he has become and the youth he remembers himself to have been. Lively in tone, impressive in its intellectual breadth, A Year of the Hunter offers a splendid introduction to Milosz for new readers and, for those who know his essays and poetry, the pleasure of watching him master another genre. Czeslaw Milosz is the winner of the 1978 Neustadt International Prize in Literature and the 1980 Nobel Prize in Literature. His works include many volumes of poetry (most recently, Collected Poems 1931-1987), the novels The Issa Valley and The Seizure of Power, the autobiographical Native Realm, the classic analysis of totalitarian thinking The Captive Mind, several volumes of essays and criticism, most recently Beginning with My Streets. Since 1961 he has been Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California at Berkeley.
