Summary/Abstract: The edited volume "Continents. Vol. 2: Studies and essays on the work of Bogdan Czaykowski" attempts a multifaceted reinterpretation of the work of one of the most interesting Polish poets of the 20th and 21st centuries, boasting a rich, dramatic biography. Bogdan Czaykowski (born in 1932 in Poland, died in 2007 in Canada) was, among other things, a poet, member of the London-based Continents poetry group, translator, literary critic, anthologist, editor of numerous academic works, and long-time lecturer at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. The 27 articles in this volume offer a comprehensive look at Bogdan Czaykowski's work — his poetry, prose, essays, literary criticism, sociology, translation and editing, and activity as an epistologist and interlocutor. In view of the number of inedites left in the writer’s archives, this volume also contains lesser-known works, such as "Diary from India", the poems “The Epitaph” and “Farewell”, important critical and literary sketches originally written in English, and, additionally, a "Calendar of the Life and Works of Bogdan Czaykowski", as well as an extensive bibliography of his oeuvre.
