9780691013800: Sounds, Feelings, Thoughts

Translated and Introduced by Magnus J. Krynski and Robert A. Maguire Regarded as one of the best representatives since World War II of the rich and ancient art of poetry in Poland, Wislawa Szymborska (1923-2012) is, in the translators' words, "that rarest of phenomena: a serious poet who commands a large audience in her native land." The seventy poems in this bilingual edition are among the largest and most representative offering of her work in English, with particular emphasis on the period since 1967. They illustrate virtually all her major themes and most of her important techniques.


Describing Szymborka's poetry, Magnus Krynski and Robert Maguire write that her verse is marked by high seriousness, delightful inventiveness, a prodigal imagination, and enormous technical skill. She writes of the diversity, plenitude, and richness of the world, taking delight in observing and naming its phenomena. She looks on with wonder, astonishment, and amusement, but almost never with despair.

Language Notes:

Text: English, Polish (translation)

From Library Journal:

"This volume reveals a poet of startling originality and deep sympathy," said LJ's reviewer of this 1981 collection of 70 poems by the then relatively unknown Polish poet who has now won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Though the poems deal with loss, "hers is not a voice of despair, but one capable of balancing loss with wonder" (LJ 9/1/81).
