The Withering World by Sándor Márai (Alma Classics - Hardcover)

Product Description

The Withering World by Sándor Márai (Alma Classics - Hardcover) (Dual-language/Parallel Text Edition)

Translated from the Hungarian by John M. Ridland and Peter V. Czipott. With an introduction by Tibor Fischer.

First translation of Marai's poems into English. Here presented in a dual-language edition. Although he is now mostly remembered as a novelist, it is as a poet and translator of poetry that Sándor Márai – the acclaimed author of Embers and Conversations in Bolzano – first made his name in the literary world.

This collection, the first and only edition of Márai’s poems in the English language – here presented in John M. Ridland’s and Peter V. Czipott’s brilliant verse translation – offers a comprehensive selection spanning the author’s whole career and exemplifying his mastery of what he considered to be the highest form of literary expression.
