Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

  • About
  • Sándor Weöres (1913–1989) studied at the University of Pécs. His doctoral dissertation The Birth of the Poem was published in 1939. He settled in Budapest in 1951. In the Stalinist period from 1948 he was able to publish little until 1964. He translated a wide range of poetry into Hungarian, including (to mention English originals only) some Shakespeare, nonsense poems of Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll, and Eliot’s The Waste Land.
