Wisława Szymborska first became known in Korea after she won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1996, but came closer to readers with the publication of her poetry book entitled "The End and the Beginning" (including 170 poems) in 2007. The Korean version of Szymborska’s poetry book first drew attention of Korean poets and novelists and, later, owing to their active introduction of the book to Korea, her poems became very popular among general public as well. Her poetry book "The End and the Beginning" went through twelve editions in Korea, and more than 12 000 copies have been sold as the book has become a steady seller. Immediately after the publication of the book, her poems were simply read, cited and critiqued, but later they were used as motifs in the creation of literary works which went on to influence other genres such as film, ballet, and photography. Furthermore, Szymborska’s poems have been cited and interpreted in various social contexts beyond the limits of literature and art. Even though she passed away in 2012, many Korean poets, critics, scholars, and general public still enjoy reading and citing her poems.
