NOBELS LITTERATURPRIS I 1996

Wislawa Szymborska modtog Nobels Litteraturpris i 1996 med ordene ”For en poesi, der med ironisk præcision lader den historiske og biologiske sammenhæng træde frem i fragtmenter af menneskets hverdag”.

 

I nobelpristalen talte Wislawa for første gang om hvad poesi er: ”I value that little phrase "I don't know" so highly. It's small, but it flies on mighty wings. It expands our lives to include the spaces within us as well as those outer expanses in which our tiny Earth hangs suspended. Poets, if they're genuine, must also keep repeating "I don't know"
