Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Csoori, Hungary's premiere postwar poet, works in the tradition of Fate-literature . According to Roberts's introduction to this thoughtful collection, this tradition summons native poets as conscientious spokespersons of turmoil, specifically of the Hungarian plight. This book culls Csoori's poems in reverse chronological order, offering three sections: 1982 to present, 1973 to 1982, and 1962 to 1973. Predictably, the first section starkly shows the ravages of war, Communism, and depersonalization. The earlier two sections are perforce more subtle in their existential rumination and celebration of folk and national heritage. But through all the dilemma, there is ultimate resolve: ``I think of those who may be destroyed, who are not shielded by a dream.'' Highly recommended.-- Kenneth Mintz, Hoboken P.L., N.J.
