View with a Grain of Sand: Selected Poems (Paperback)
I hadn't heard of Szymborska before her Nobel in literature in 1996. I can only imagine how great she is in Polish, but in English she is extraordinary. Her poetry is very accessible and has the air of everyday life to it. It deceptively challenges you to think about things that might fist appear as obvious, but the simple disappears as she takes you around the corner, under and over with her lines. Read any poetry book by her. — From Jeff's Picks
