Perhaps you know this already. If you didn't - allow me to educate.
Czeslaw Milosz is not pronounced "Coleslaw Milosovich" as I previously thought but "Chess-wov Mee-woash." Who knew? I am putting this into everyday use along with Simone Weil (which I now know is pronounced "Vey" not "While.")
(This is a picture of the poet himself.)
