Poems New and Collected
Poems New and Collected
by Wislawa Szymborska
Staff Pick
One of only 13 women to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature (out of 111 total laureates), Polish poet Wisława Szymborska (pronounced vees-WAH-vah shim-BOR-ska) was awarded the world's highest literary honor in 1996. A career-spanning work that features poems from eight separate collections, Poems New and Collected offers some four decades of the poet's finest verse. Despite having published only a few hundred poems during her lifetime, Szymborska was regarded as one of the century's finest European Poets. Described as the "Mozart of Poetry," Szymborska was recognized by the Nobel committee "for poetry that with ironic precision allows the historical and biological context to come to light in fragments of human reality." With rich imagery and a wide stylistic range, the profundity of Szymborska's poetry makes it personal, timeless, and universally relevant.

The Dream of a Common Language: Poems 1974-1977
The Dream of a Common Language: Poems 1974-1977
by Adrienne Rich
Staff Pick
How often, among literature lovers, are poems from Adrienne Rich's The Dream of a Common Language quoted? ("I choose not to suffer uselessly // ...I choose to love this time for once / with all my intelligence," from "Splittings.") This collection, especially the middle sequence, "Twenty-One Love Poems," contains some of the most beautiful and arresting love poetry written this century. Adrienne Rich is a feminist giant, and these poems, written in 1974, map and delineate the territory of women's love for women (sexual and otherwise) and the struggle of selfhood, consciousness, history, and art with strength, creativity, and fierce empathy. Even if you think you're not a fan of poetry, Rich's work — her "common language" — will move you.
