Publisher Comments:

Described by Robert Hass as "unquestionably one of the great living European poets" and by Charles Simic as "one of the finest poets living today," Szymborska mesmerizes her readers with poetry that captivates their minds and captures their hearts. This is the book that her many fans have been anxiously awaiting-the definitive, complete collection of poetry by the Nobel Prize-winning poet, including 164 poems in all, as well as the full text of her Nobel acceptance speech of December 7, 1996, in Stockholm. Beautifully translated by Stanislaw Bara«nczak and Clare Cavanagh, who won a 1996 PEN Translation Prize for their work, this volume is a must-have for all readers of poetry.

Synopsis:

The definitive collection of the 1996 Nobel Laureate Wislawa Szymborska's poetry in English includes 100 poems from her phenomenally popular "View with a Grain of Sand", plus 64 newly translated poems and her Nobel Prize acceptance address.

Synopsis:
