Milosz and the problem of evil

by Lukasz Tischner | 30 July 2015
Category: Religion
Synopsis
While scholars have chronicled Czes?aw Mi?osz's engagement with religious belief, no previous book-length treatment has focused on his struggles with theodicy in both poetry and thought. Mi?osz wrestled with the problem of believing in a just God given the powerful evidence to the contrary in the natural world as he observed it and in the horrors of World War II and its aftermath in Poland. Rather than attempt to survey Mi?osz's vast oeuvre, ?ukasz Tischner focuses on several key works - The Land of Ulro, The World, The Issa Valley, A Treatise on Morals, A Treatise on Poetry, and From the Rising of the Sun - carefully tracing the development of Mi?osz's moral arguments, especially in relation to the key texts that influenced him, among them the Bible, the Gnostic writings, and the works of Blake, Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Schopenhauer. The result is a book that examines Mi?osz as both a thinker and an artist, shedding new light on all aspects of his oeuvre.
