About Oscar Milosz

  • Oscar Vladislas de Lubicz Milosz (Lithuanian: Oskaras Milašius; Polish: Oskar Wladyslaw Milosz) (28 May 1877 – 2 March 1939) was a French language poet, playwright, novelist, essayist and representative of Lithuania at the League of Nations.
  • His literary career began at the end of the nineteenth century during la Belle Époque and reached its high point in the mid-1920s with the books Ars Magna and Les Arcanes, in which he developed a highly personal and dense Christian cosmogony comparable to that of Dante in The Divine Comedy and John Milton in Paradise Lost.
  • A solitary and unique twentieth-century metaphysician, his poems are visionary and often tormented.
  • He was a distant cousin of Polish writer Czeslaw Milosz, winner of the Nobel Prize for literature in 1980.
