More than 150 poems from the Polish Nobel laureate beginning with her third collection, Calling Out to Yeti. “Dark, complex, and profoundly intelligent.”—The Washington Post
Described in her lifetime 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 mesmerized her readers with poetry that captivated their minds and captured their hearts. This is the book that her many fans will cherish—the definitive, complete collection of poetry by the Nobel Prize-winning poet from 1957-1997, 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 Baranczak and Clare Cavanagh, who won a 1996 PEN Translation Prize for their work, this volume is a must-have for all readers of poetry.
