    • "It is wonderful to have these essays by a significant poet of our century gathered together and expertly translated into English. Ágnes Nemes Nagy is one of the most important figures in East European poetry, and her work is still in the process of being discovered by English-speaking readers. Her prose, meanwhile, reveals another side of her sensibility, and its range of subjects and insights is considerable. This collection will be of interest not only because it is the work of an important woman writer and a Hungarian survivor of Stalinism, but because it is the writing of a skilled and deeply thoughtful poet."
