Wislawa Szymborska

Yesterday, the Polish Nobel laureate Wislawa Szymborska died.

She was one of my favorite poets. I discovered her shortly after I discovered the Nobel Prize’s website (and the sample works provided for some of the previous laureates). Her work spoke to me and years later I picked up a copy of View with a Grain of Sand at Book People in Austin. I have cherished the book ever since.
