Anna T. Szabo is one of Hungary’s most exciting poets, and this Selected, her first in English, draws on seven collections written over twenty years. The poems are striking for their passionate examination of female experience as well as their philosophical depths. Szabo is a poet of relationships, whose subjects are intimacy and betrayal. Clare Pollard is a UK poet whose work touches on many similar themes, and this collaborative translation will allow English readers to experience Szabo’s intelligent, sensuous voice.
