Quote by Wislawa Szymborska
I usually write for the individual reader -though I would like to have many such readers. There are some poets who write for people assembled in big rooms, so they can live through something collectively. I prefer my reader to take my poem and have a one-on-one relationship with it.
In this quote, the author expresses their writing preference, stating that they typically write for an individual reader, although they aspire to have many readers. They highlight the contrast between their approach and that of other poets who aim to connect with a large group of people in shared experiences. The author favors a more intimate and personal connection with their readers, where each individual can establish a unique and personal relationship with their poems.
