About this product
- DescriptionThese poems record what Sandor Csosri calls the chronic memory of violence, namely the horrors of World War II and the ensuing Communist occupation of Hungary. Several poems written after Communism collapsed cast a cold eye on the state of a free Hungary. Imbued with deft surrealistic strokes, Csosri creates a stunningly symbolic and visionary voice that is unique in contemporary world poetry.
Sandor Csosri, one of Hungary's most prominent and outspoken poets, is the author of 16 books of poetry, six books of essays, two vels, and several film scripts.
Len Roberts is the translator of two chapbooks and one previous full length volume of Sandor Csosri's poetry, as well as eight books of his own poetry.
