A standing-room only audience was taken on a tour of Szymborska’s work: the philosophic, the playful, the political, the pensive. Performed in Polish and in English the hour allowed the great range of Szymborska’s to be presented. The audience response told all: sometimes the room rippled with laughter at poems such as ‘Conversation with a Stone’ or ‘A Contribution to Statistics’; at other times a total silence fell before poems like ‘Photograph from September 11’ or ‘Tortures’.
