Szymborska is a Polish poet who won the Nobel Prize
pondering ordinary amazements, like how "a
small and airy cloud is able to upstage the massive moon." Full of wisdom,
irony and wit, these poems push us to see the complexities of the world afresh
and to ask: What is true love? Why are we here? Are our lives ruled by
fate or luck?
