About the Book

Forty poems and one essay by the left-wing schizophrenic Hungarian poet who committed suicide by throwing himself under a train.

"I have long thought of Attila Jozsef as one of the great poets of the century—a tragic realist whose work beautifully redeemed the unbearable conditions of the life to which history condemned him. These new translations will be welcomed."—Donald Justice
