Summary/Abstract: Cierń nostalgii (The Thorn of Nostalgia) is a unique anthology of world lyric poetry, containing poems about love, life and death written in different epochs and countries. What they have in common is reflection on the passing of time and the meaning of existence, a sense of the irreversibility of fate and melancholy. The original works are accompanied by translations by Jerzy Danielewicz. Collecting in one book similar thematically poems of about 80 poets writing in different languages and times (from the 7th century BC to the 3rd century AD and in the 13th-21st centuries) will certainly facilitate the access of poetry lovers to these not always easily accessible works, many of which deserve to be called masterpieces.
