Item description for Before and After the Fall: New Poems (Lannan Translations Selection Series) by Sndor Csori...
These poems record what Sndor Csori 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, Csori creates a stunningly symbolic and visionary voice that is unique in contemporary world poetry.
Sndor Csori, one of Hungary's most prominent and outspoken poets, is the author of 16 books of poetry, six books of essays, two novels, and several film scripts.
Len Roberts is the translator of two chapbooks and one previous full length volume of Sndor Csori's poetry, as well as eight books of his own poetry.
