The amazing thing about this book is the translation. It reads like a brilliant collection of English poems. As for Syzmborska, she has a beautifully elegant, humane, witty and intelligent voice. She is, I feel, also very accessible and immediate. Even when discussing the most serious and daunting topics her tone is gently ironic and amused, but always tolerant. Some of her poems are very unsettling, dizzying in their temporal and existential perspectives. She has a very unique and powerful way of conveying the experience of living in the flux of time.

Wonderfully imaginative poetry. Subject matter so variable to make it even entertaining. Szymborska's black humor in one or two of these poems left me giggling, while others certainly challenge the moral viewpoint of much of our mainstream assumptions

She won a Nobel Prize for Literature. This collection demonstrates why. There are simply not enough words for her genius.

The book is printed clearly and the paper also has good quality. The price is not too high and it is worth buying.
