These sixteen essays reveal Herverts discriminating artistic eye and poetic sensibility, one that revels in irony, humor, and a satirists appreciation of the absurd. An inveterate museum-goer, he focuses on the art of the Dutch masters, using it as a stepping-off point for a thoroughly individual and entertaining examination of the foibles, genius, and character of the Dutch people as a whole.

The result is an unorthodox and revealing glimpse into the past that gives us a keener understanding not only of a distant people, but of ourselves as well.Author Biography:Zbigniew Herbert (1924-1998) was a spiritual leader of the anticommunist movement in Poland.
