Maria Wisława Anna Szymborska [viˈswava ʂɨmˈbɔrska] war eine polnische Lyrikerin. Sie zählt zu den bedeutendsten Lyrikern ihrer Generation in Polen, wo ihre Gedichte zur Nationalliteratur gerechnet werden. Im deutschen Sprachraum wurde sie bereits früh durch die Übertragungen von Karl Dedecius bekannt und erhielt mehrere bedeutende Auszeichnungen. 1996 wurde ihr der Nobelpreis für Literatur verliehen. Seitdem ist ihr schmales Werk von rund 350 Gedichten auch international stark verbreitet und in mehr als 40 Sprachen übersetzt.

Szymborska hielt ihr Privatleben weitgehend vor der Öffentlichkeit verborgen. Ihr Werk stand Anfang der 1950er Jahre noch ganz im Zeichen des Sozialistischen Realismus. Mit dem Gedichtband Wołanie do Yeti gelang ihr 1957 der Durchbruch zur eigenen Ausdrucksform, die geprägt ist von Zweifel und Ironie. Häufig betrachtet sie alltägliche Begebenheiten aus ungewöhnlichen Perspektiven, die zu allgemeinen philosophischen Fragestellungen führen. Szymborskas Gedichte sind in einer einfachen, leicht verständlichen Sprache gehalten. Sie folgen keiner einheitlichen Poetik, sondern besitzen jeweils ihren individuellen Stil. Zu den populärsten Gedichten gehört Katze in der leeren Wohnung. Neben Lyrik verfasste Szymborska auch Feuilletons in verschiedenen Literaturzeitschriften.

Zitate Wisława Szymborska

„I remember it so clearly —
how people, seeing me, would break off in midword.
Laughter died.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: I remember it so clearly — how people, seeing me, would break off in midword. Laughter died. Lovers' hands unclasped. Children ran to their mothers. I didn't even know their short-lived names. And that song about a little green leaf — no one ever finished it near me. "Soliloquy for Cassandra"

„I no longer require
your stone gods, your ruins with legible inscriptions.“

„I felt age within me. Distance.
The futility of wandering. Torpor.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: I felt age within me. Distance. The futility of wandering. Torpor. I looked back setting my bundle down. I looked back not knowing where to set my foot. Serpents appeared on my path, spiders, field mice, baby vultures. They were neither good nor evil now — every living thing was simply creeping or hopping along in the mass panic. "Lot's Wife"

„They were neither good nor evil now — every living thing

„Don't bear me ill will, speech, that I borrow weighty words,
then labor heavily so that they may seem light.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: I know I won't be justified as long as I live, since I myself stand in my own way. Don't bear me ill will, speech, that I borrow weighty words, then labor heavily so that they may seem light. "Under One Small Star"

„God of humor, do something about him today.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: Within him, there's awful darkness, in the darkness a small boy. God of humor, do something about him, OK? God of humor, do something about him today. "A Film from the Sixties"

revised, improved edition“

„Contemporary poets are skeptical and suspicious even, or perhaps especially, about themselves.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: Contemporary poets are skeptical and suspicious even, or perhaps especially, about themselves. They publicly confess to being poets only reluctantly, as if they were a little ashamed of it. But in our clamorous times it's much easier to acknowledge your faults, at least if they're attractively packaged, than to recognize your own merits, since these are hidden deeper and you never quite believe in them yourself.

„I am a tarsier and a tarsier's son,
the grandson and great-grandson of tarsiers“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: I am a tarsier and a tarsier's son, the grandson and great-grandson of tarsiers, a tiny creature, made up of two pupils and whatever simply could not be left out... "Tarsier"

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: And how can we talk of order overall when the very placement of the stars leaves us doubting just what shines for whom?Not to speak of the fog's reprehensible drifting!

Only what is human can truly be foreign. "Psalm"
