Product Description

In Quest of the Miracle Stag: The Poetry of Hungary - Volume 1 and 2 by Adam Makkai / An Anthology of Hungarian Poetry 

 

,,In Quest of the Miracle Stag is an astonishing anthology of Hungarian poetry from the thirteenth century to the present. It is a revelation, an inundation and - thanks to a helpful apparatus of notes and essays by the editor Adam Makkai and other helpers - an education in a great corpus of poetry insufficiently known in English."

Seamus Heaney, Nobel Laureate for Literature
(The Times Literary Supplement, December 5, 1997)


Volume 1:  ISBN: 9789638602428 / 978-9638602428

 

About Volume 2:  ISBN: 9789632108148 / 978-9632108148

CONTEMPORARY Hungarian Poetry is a direct continuation of the seven hundred-year old tradition that was so admirably presented by Professor Adam Makkai and his associates in Volume 1 of this unique collection.  Whereas Hungary's poets of old were following the Miracle Stag's westward flight, it is no exaggeration to say that contemporary Hungarian poets have found their place in World Literature.
