Transparent Lion by Attila Jozsef

Book Description

Regarded by many as Hungary's greatest 20th century poet, Jozsef was born in Budapest in 1905 and died, after apparently throwing himself under a train, in December of 1937. Writing in intense emotional tones that swung beetween despair and hope, Jozsef invigorated old poetic forms with a new freedom, orchestrating his poems with fresh rythmic patterns influenced by folk music's rythms as well as their metrics. But Jozsef was also influenced by Dadaist and other modernist ideas, finding a voice that would synthetise the older cultural forms with the newer experiments.
