Czesław Miłosz
Czesław Miłosz (June 30, 1911 – August 14, 2004) was a Polish poet and essayist. Czesław Miłosz won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1980, when he lived in California. He spent the last days of his life in Kraków, Poland.

Born in Šeteniai, Lithuania, in a Polish gentry family (Lubicz noble clan), he always underlined his connection to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Miłosz studied law at the University in Wilno|. His childhood was spent partly in Russia around the time of the Revolution.

In 1944 he refused to take part in the Warsaw Uprising. A diplomat for the communist People's Republic of Poland, he broke with the government in 1951 and sought political asylum in France. In 1953 he received the Prix Littéraire Européen, a European literature prize.

In 1960, he came to the United States, but it wasn't until 1970 that he became a naturalized citizen. In 1961 he became a Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Berkeley. He retired in 1978 but continued to teach there. When the Iron Curtain fell he was able to return to Poland.

Czesław Miłosz received the National Medal of Arts and an honorary doctorate from Harvard University in 1989. In addition to his poetry, his book The Captive Mind is considered one of the finest studies of the condition of the intellectual under repressive regimes. In this book, he observed that the intellectuals who became dissidents were not necessarily the ones with the strongest minds, but those with the weakest stomachs. The mind can rationalize anything, he said, but the stomach can only take so much. He also said that as a poet he avoided touching his nation's wounds for fearing of making them holy.

Czesław Miłosz is honored at Israel's Yad Vashem memorial to the Holocaust as one of the "Righteous Among The Nations." His poems were put on the monuments of fallen shipyard workers in Gdańsk. Many of his books and poems have been translated into English by his friend and Berkeley colleague Robert Hass.

Miłosz died in 2004 at his home in Kraków at age 93. His first wife, Janina, died in 1986. His second wife, Carol, a U.S.-born historian, died in 2002.
