For Serious Consideration

June 29, 1986

While "Unattainable Earth" may not be among the best of Czeslaw Milosz's work, it is taken seriously nevertheless by critics other than your reviewer, Tom Phillips (Book Review, May 25), because of what Milosz has accomplished over a lifetime and not because of any "atmosphere of overindulgence" created by the New York Review of Books. The work of someone of the stature of Milosz, despite its occasional slenderness, could have been made and published in any atmosphere.
