Finite Formulae & Theories of Chance

by Wioletta Greg

Translated by Marek Kazmierski

Part of our Arc Translations series

One hundred years since the outbreak of the First World War, the Polish poet Wioletta Greg undertakes a literary journey through her own family history, exploring in both poetry and prose a century of life, death, love and tragedy. With passion, tenderness and humour, she traces a path from the lives of her grandparents in early twentieth-century Poland, through two world wars, life under Communism and the subsequent liberation, to her own experiences as a migrant living in Britain on the Isle of Wight.

Wioletta Greg's new collection, in Marek Kazmierski's attentive and nuanced trans­lation, serves as both a moving personal testament to a family that survived, and a compelling document of a century of European history.
