Transparent Lion by Attila Jozsef
Book DescriptionRegarded 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.

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 Batki demonstrates how contemporary this work remains."
