Loved by our collective!

An amazingly comprehensive collection of poems by Wisława Szymborska and translated by Clare Cavanagh and Stanisław Barańczak. This book contains poetry collections from Wisława's youth in 1944, to a collection published in 2011, shortly before her death. I addmitedly do not read much poetry, but I picked this up on a whim and loved every page. Her words are curious, thoughtful, playful, meloncholy, and questioning. The experience of seeing her work mature and age over time was an unforgettably moving experience. Great to pick up and read if you are feeling curious about the world and human perception in a way that doesn't require answers, but rather enjoys the questions and strangeness of it all.
