THE DEATH OF THE POLISH POET AND NOBEL-AWARDEE: WISLAWA SZYMBORSKA!

THE DEATH OF THE POLISH POET- ‘WISLAWA SZYMBORSKA HAS LEFT THE LITERARY WORLD IN MOURNING!
She had produced around 400 poems in a literary span of 60yrs.
ROBERT HASS once described her as UNQUESTIONABLY ONE OF THE GREATEST LIVING POETS IN EUROPE.
WISLAWA SZYMBORSKA WAS A HIGHLY SOUGHT-AFTER PERSONA IN THE LITERARY CIRCLE IN POST WORLD WAR POLAND.
Like many other writers of her generation,she too was extremely impressed with the communist-ideology and her earlier works were heavily biased in admiration of communism.In Poland of Communist-Censor era,she was quick to strike a chord with the socio-politcal culture of poland.Her unwavering faith was towards the SOCIALIST-REALISM.
But,like many other authors of her time,she too was quickly disillusioned with the false promises and the Stalinist Way of Communism.
She became very bitter and had denounced everything related with communism !
Her later works were a scathing rebuttal of sort to her earlier works.
WISLAWA SZYMBORSKA DIED AT THE AGE OF 88 IN HER HOME TOWN OF KRAKOW,POLAND.
SHE GOT THE NOBEL AWARD FOR LITERATURE IN 1996.

THE VOID CREATED BY HER DEPARTURE WILL UNLIKELY BE FILLED SOON!
POLISH GOVERNMENT REFERRED HER AS ‘THE GUARDIAN-SPIRIT’.

MAY HER SOUL REST IN PEACE!
