Meet Polish poet Wisława Szymborska as we continue our preparations for celebrating Take Your Poet to Work Day on July 15.
The young Master in Wisława Szymborska’s “Interview with a Child” challenges us to reject the idea that things are only as they seem.
When contemplating infinity, it’s helpful to have a small thing that can fit in our hand. Wisława Szymborska places a blue umbrella alongside the universe.
It’s difficult to explain good fortune, though that didn’t stop Wisława Szymborska from trying in her poem “Could Have.”
Wisława Szymborska’s “Conversation with a Stone” evokes the infuriating sense of talking to a rock. That’s a good reason to love the poem.
Join us for Week #1 of our National Poetry Month Poetry Dare. We’re looking at “Vocabulary” and “An Effort” by Wisława Szymborska. What did you read?
