Miłość szczęśliwa (“True Love”) collection of poems, signed by the author
Miłość szczęśliwa (“True Love”) is the first collection available in Poland of Wisława Szymborska’s love poems. This subtle, yet fundamentally crucial example of the poet’s work, is based on careful observation, often bitter or ironic reflection, but also a belief in the power of emotion. Miłość szczęśliwa explores various aspects of love: wrote Joanna Szczęsna about this collection in 2007.
