Selected Poems of Attila Jozsef

In pure lyrics and longer elegiac poems this great Hungarian poet inscribed not only his own sad fate but that of millions in an Eastern Europe that only nominally “between the wars” during the ‘20s and 30s. Translator Bátki demonstrates how contemporary this work remains.
