“Man’s personality, his freedom, possesses something untamed, mysterious, divine, unhistorical, undomesticated.  That something speaks quietly in art, in theology, and in the pursuit of truth in disciplines to numerous to name.  We in the West have forgotten that it is this delicate something that is the hunted animal, preyed upon by tyrannic political regimes and their countless conformities.”  Adam Zagajewski ‘Solitary Solitude’

Writing as a contemporary Gerard Mantley Hopkins, Zagajewski’s concern is for the concrete particular as a curative against any temptation of pure art.
