Poems New and Collected - Wisława Szymborska, Clare Cavanagh I don't read so much poetry yet, but Szymborska has the precious gift of writing about everyday things and thoughts in an appealing way.

Her poetry has the power and the strength of simplicity without insisting on metric structures.
Reading what Szymborska wrote and writes I have the impression she is a very down to Earth and sensitive person, while most of her colleagues believe to be Words Gods, separated by the rest of the world.
