Join us for the launch of poets Clive Wilmer and George Gömöri’s latest collaboration, Steep Path: Translation from the Hungarian.

The poetry of modern Hungary is among the most exciting in the world – or so it seems to George Gömöri and Clive Wilmer, who have been introducing it to English-speaking readers for forty-seven years.

Steep Path is a selection from the hundreds of verse translations they have made – seventy unforgettable poems by ten outstanding modern poets. The book is not representative – it gathers together the poems that the translators think work best as English poems. It includes large selections from the books George and Clive have published – by Miklos Radnoti, Janos Pilinszky, Gyorgy Petri and George Gomori himself – together with less well-known poems from magazines and anthologies.

Readings from the book will be followed by a drinks reception.

Copies of the book will be available to purchase (cash only).

Free event, open to all. BOOK HERE
