Overview
-Both plain-spoken and luminous . . . Szymborska's] is the best of the Western mind--free, restless, questioning.- -- New York Times Book Review

A New York Times Editors' Choice


-Vast, intimate, and charged with the warmth of a life fully imagined to the end. There's no better place for those unfamiliar with her work to begin.-
-- Vogue

One of Europe's greatest poets is also its wisest, wittiest, and most accessible. Nobel Prize winner Wisława Szymborska draws us in with her unexpected, unassuming humor. -If you want the world in a nutshell, - a Polish critic remarked, -try Szymborska.- But the world held in these lapidary poems is larger than the one we thought we knew.

​Edited by her longtime, award-winning translator, Clare Cavanagh, Map traces Szymborska's work until her death in 2012. Of the approximately two hundred fifty poems included here, nearly forty are newly translated; thirteen represent the entirety of the poet's last Polish collection, Enough, never before published in English. Map offers Szymborska's devoted readers a welcome return to her -ironic elegance- (TheNew Yorker).

-Her poems offer a restorative wit as playful as it is steely and as humble as it is wise . . . Her wry acceptance of life's folly remain s] her strongest weapon against tyranny and bad taste.-
-- Los Angeles Times Book Review
