Recommended for: you :)
Read from May 26 to 27, 2011 , read count: 1

In translation, and I hope in the original, these are lucid, witty (not funny, though) poems. They read like something between Auden and metaphysical poetry (fewer flowers and misogyny, but the same use of conceits). I really liked Szymborska's work, and will have to look for more of it.
