About this author

Miklós Radnóti, birth name Miklós Glatter was a Hungarian poet who fell victim to The Holocaust.
Radnóti was born into an assimilated Jewish family. His life was considerably shaped by the fact that both his mother and his twin brother died at his birth. He refers to this trauma in the title of his compilation Ikrek hava ("Month of Gemini"/"Month of the Twins").

Though in his last years, Hungarian society rejected him as a Jew, in his poems he identifies himself very strongly as a Hungarian. His poetry mingles avant-garde and expressionist themes with a new classical style, a good example being his eclogues. His romantic love poetry is notable as well.

“The road whinnies and rears up. The sky gallops.
You are permanent within me in this chaos.
Somewhere deep in my mind you shine forever, without
moving, silent, like the angel awed by death,
or like the insect burying itself
in the rotted heart of a tree.”
Miklós Radnóti, Clouded Sky

“Save me, O you who love me; love me bravely.”
Miklós Radnóti, Clouded Sky

“Ember vigyázz, figyeld meg jól világod:
ez volt a múlt, emez a vad jelen,-
hordozd szivedben. Éld e rossz világot
és mindig tudd, hogy mit kell tenned érte,
hogy más legyen.”
Miklós Radnóti, Forced March
