The Darkness of Mr. Cogito
This chapter describes the life and works of Polish poet Zbigniew Herbert. Herbert is credited with almost singlehandedly introducing a whole new poetic idiom and changing the literary sensibility of Polish readers who matured in the turbulent sixties and seventies. It was for this younger group of readers, spared the experience of World War II and the worst excesses of Stalinism, that Herbert's writing became “a prayer of the generation.”
