    Georges Szirtes

    GS is a poet and translator of Szabo, Krasznahorkai and Marai. Here he explores his own past and identity by writing about his mother, Magda, weaving backwards from her death, through her life in English exile, to the events of 1956 and her youth in Hungary. Szirtes’s voice is meditative yet direct.
