czeslaw_milosz Nobel Laureate Czeslaw Milosz (1911-2004) edited the anthology The Book of Luminous Things: An Intertnational Anthology of Poetry (Harvest Books, 1998), which remains in print.  As amazon.com notes, Milosz,  in his introduction to the anthology, describes the book as having gathered poems that are “short, clear, readable, and…realistic, that is, loyal toward reality and attempting to describe it as concisely as possible.”
