The Colonnade of Teeth: Modern Hungarian Poetry (Paperback)
This anthology presents the work of the most important Hungarian poets born after the turn of the century, starting with the major figure of Lorinc Szabo, born in 1900. Some of the poets have worked while in exile -- Gyorgy Faludy and Victor Hatar for example. Others, including Sador Kanyadi, are members of Hungarian minorities living outside Hungary's present borders. Those working in Hungary include the middle generation of Otto Orba and Zsusza Takrcs, and younger poets with international reputations such as Gyorgy Petri, known for his sharp satires and ironic elegies, and Zsuzsa Rakovszky, with her passionate and closely observed poems of everyday life.
