POEMS: New and Collected 1957-1997

Email this review


A gathering of virtually all the poems by the 1996 Nobel Prize winner adds 64 to the last collection (and Szymborska's modest Nobel lecture) by these most capable translators, who give us a poet of great wit, chatty familiarity, hard-earned ironies, and charming self-mockery. A perfectly accessible volume to silence cynics who have stopped reading poetry.
