Author(s): Wislawa Szymborska
This collection represents the best work of the Nobel Prize-winning Polish poet, Wislawa Szymborska. Including an introduction by Czeslaw Miosz, this volume samples the full range of Szymborska's major themes: the ironies of love, the wonders of nature's beauty and the illusory character of art. Her voice emerges through Joanna Tzeciak's elegant translations as that of a gentle subversive, graced with a gift for coaxing the extraordinary out of the ordinary.
Wislawa Szymborska is the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, and her translator, Joanna Trzeciak is the winner of the Heldt Prize for Translation in Slavic Studies.
