Between 1952 and 1993 Szymborska published more than a dozen volumes
of poetry. She later disowned the first two volumes, which contain poems
in the style of Socialist Realism, as not indicative of her true poetic
intentions. Her third volume, Wolanie do Yeti (1957; "Calling Out
to Yeti"), marked a clear shift to a more personal style of poetry
and expressed her dissatisfaction with communism (Stalinism in particular).
Subsequent volumes, such as Sol (1962; "Salt"), Sto pociech
(1967; "No End of Fun"), and Wszelki wypadek (1972; "Could
Have"), contain poems noteworthy for their precise and concrete
language and their ironic detachment. A selection of her poems was translated
into English and published in 1995 under the title View with a Grain
