The Withering World, Hardback Book

The Withering World Hardback


Although he is now mostly remembered as a novelist, it is as a poet and a translator of poetry that Sandor Marai - 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 Marai's poems in the English language - here presented in John M.

Rudland'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.
