    Our curiosity towards the metaphysical is considered to be exclusively human; our self-awareness, identity and purpose form our humanity. Instead of offering solace to self-doubt, Szymborska revels in ambiguity and uncertainty implying humans merely exist without an objective purpose or special significance. She questions the existential in her poem Astonishment and Maybe All This to reflect the absurdity of existence as well as human ignorance in attempting to answer it. In Astonishment she…
