Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An exciting collection of poems by Wislawa Szymborska. When Here was published in Poland, reviewers marveled, “How is it that she keeps getting better?” These twenty-seven poems, as rendered by prize-winning translators Clare Cavanagh and Stanislaw Baranczak, are among her greatest ever. Whether writing about her teenage self, microscopic creatures, or the upsides to living on Earth, she remains a virtuoso of form, line, and thought.

From the title poem:

I cant speak for elsewhere,

but here on Earth weve got a fair supply of everything.

Here we manufacture chairs and sorrows,

scissors, tenderness, transistors, violins, teacups, dams, and quips . . .

Like nowhere else, or almost nowhere,

youre given your own torso here,

equipped with the accessories required

for adding your own children to the rest.

Not to mention arms, legs, and astonished head.
