Tibor FischerThe distinguished poet George Szirtes has translated Marai gracefully. Marai’s style, especially in his later works, is extremely clear and spare (there’s an almost Balzacian inventory of Abel’s household here, something you won’t find again). But the clarity is deceptive. You read a sentence and then 10 minutes later you find yourself thinking, What did he really mean by that? You’ll be wondering about The Rebels a long time after you’ve put it down.
